Navigating Your Teen

Are you parenting a teen? Or soon will be? Brace yourself! Your lovely interactive child will soon turn into a volatile body of emotions. Not all teens become difficult and unpredictable. But if your child does, here's my number one tip. Remember when she was two and you gave her a choice between the blue shirt or the red one? You didn't tell her what she was going to wear, you let her have some control, and this saved you a 30 minute tantrum. Well, it's that time again. Try to avoid telling and give choices as much as possible. We all like to think we have some control. This article is also a good read for enjoying your teen. If you feel you need some support through this exciting, crazy time, give me a call to set up an appointment.
