Figurative Language:  Spicing it up with idioms, similes and metaphors!
Pepper your language with figurative language as this will help your adolescent build more abstract language skills, a hallmark of the advanced language stage.  Use of figurative language in meaningful contexts will help your child "own" those figures of speech; awareness and practice will help him build reading comprehension or help her for needed "tang" while writing.  Talk about figurative language examples while reading with your child and remember to sprinkle them meaningfully in your speech.
