You know when children are young;
they are so sweet, loving and easy to care for. Sometimes when they
reach teen years, it can seem as if things are breaking apart.
Even good parents can sometimes feel they are a failure because
nothing seems to be working!
You may wonder what your teens want or need from you. One
minute they want you close, and the next minute they don't want
anything to do with you. It can be tough knowing they need you but
saying they don't! Most parents find this very frustrating.
What I know is that it's absolutely possible that these are normal
feelings. The trick is to break the code of what your teenagers are
trying to say. This can help you understand not only the realities
but also the emotions that go along with it. What I know is that all
teen behavior is an attempt to communicate.
What I do is to help parents understand what their teenagers are
trying to say, to help guide them to be safe, to be happy, and to
make good life choices.
