Episode 366: Raising Teenagers
Have you ever wondered if you are raising your teenager properly? I have received questions many times asking me about parenting. The general consensus out there is that if you aren’t tired, you aren’t parenting right. If you are a parent, the way we have been taught traditionally is that we are almighty and they have no voice.
I am here to say that we need to change that belief. This will help you feel in control of your life. The way you parent one child isn’t going to be the same way you parent another. Find a way to create more time with your teenager. Get them engaged with daily activities with you. Setting clear boundaries will help. Your teenager might be more open to boundaries than you think. Trust your children. Have honest conversations with them to foster a good connection. I talked with my son and he gave me feedback on what I should be doing as a parent. This was discussed on my podcast this week.
Learn more by watching this week’s Facebook Live video here where I talk about the conversation with my teenager outlining 7 pointers to help me better parent him.
“Your children are not your children, they come through you, but they are life itself, wanting to express itself.” -Wayne Dwyer
