I would make an assesment as to what their preferred style of approach might be. I would then answer their questions and express my concerns according to that style. For example, if it appears that a parent is very laid back I would communicate with them in that manner but if a parent is more "give it to me straight" then I would answer them is the same manner hoping that my information would be received better in the same way they like to communicate.
