Homework Reflections:

  • Take some time this week to really reflect on your fears. Write them down, and notice where are they are getting in the way.

  • Pay attention to your parenting style and notice what is happening when you find yourself in the controlling space, vs the permissive space.

  • Start to witness yourself in response vs reaction to the experiences that are showing up with your teen.

Homework Action:

  • Look for opportunities to try on personal responsibility for how you are responding to your teens.

  • Practice making amends with your teen.

  • Put some one on one time in the next two weeks with your teen on the calendar.

Grounding Meditations:

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.
