This is what I heard on the radio many years ago. She was experiencing a difficult time with her teenage child. The words stuck in my mind.
Generally when a child became a teenager they challenge the parents. That is a part of growing up.
But the relationship could have extra distance if the parent/s and child don’t have good communication. How has your family communicated with each other in the past 10+ years? Has the communication been open and honest? Are parents sending the message that it is ok to speak honestly about thoughts and feelings?
It starts from birth.
“You are doing well,
and you can learn to do it better”
You might have many questions about your child’s behaviour or parenting. Most of the time information from books or advice from family and friends is helpful…
… but do you sometimes have the experience that you get rather confused with what you read? Your child seems to be different from what it says in the book or there are simply too many different ideas from different books…
Or do you hesitate to ask certain questions or share your concerns with friends or family? Maybe you are afraid of being judged, or worried that other people may talk about you. This is a safe place to address your concerns or questions about your child. We discuss your unique case and together we search the answer for you and your child.
