JCA Parenting Teens
Week 2 Content
This week is all about recognizing where we are at in relationship with our teens. We are going to look at the places where we have been making assumptions, we are going to practice owning what we have brought to the space, and we are going to play with language and way of being that invites and grows connection.
This work is helpful if you work it. Listen to the audio below and then play with the concepts and ideas as suggested. Be transparent with your family about what you are learning and what you are looking to create. This isn’t a program about how to manipulate your teens into doing what you want, instead it is all about showing up for them in a way that allows them to feel seen and heard, and to develop their own internal guidance system that will serve them in the years to come.

A tool that I share that I believe is key to supporting us in keeping a calm, grounded mindset is called the 3 Bs. Practicing the 3 Bs on a regular basis support us in having access to the tools, the language and the way of being that ultimately will keep us connected to our teens, while also hearing them, staying curious, and holding boundaries.
Below you will find a short version of the 3Bs, as well as an extended version.
