The teen saga continues….
Having a teen is like birth, you think you’re so prepared and then…. Reality hits!
Teen brain experiences everything so intensely
Eps 115 was all about trust and surrender
Celebrate the relationship
Using and developing breath as a tool
4:45 Our children are our teachers – they picked us!
We don’t know what we don’t know and our children highlight that for us
Their way of being invites our “stuff” to the surface
We then choose how to respond
End of the day – they are operating from their developmental place, limited skills, brain development
7:50 Parenting is a never-ending growth and development workshop – we can choose to resist or to grow/evolve
9:15 There is a purpose to this journey
Let’s live a life where we are paying attention
Our children show us stepping stones to our own growth
When we choose into growth and learning we can influence the experience we are having
You can only change yourself, you can’t change others
Positive Discipline for Teenagers
Mistakes our kids make can rock our foundation and philosophy around parenting
Being kind and firm at the same time is one of the pillars
Peeling back layers of what that ^^ means
Kindness only = permissive
Firmness only = authoritarian
Kind isn’t NICE, it’s connected, firm is respecting ourselves and the situation
It’s about progress not perfection, and becoming ever more AWARE of what is happening for us
Making agreements is a kind and firm PD parenting tool
Get into our child’s world, here what their needs are, share what we need, make a plan together, declare a deadline, follow through (parents)
“What was our agreement?”
It’s not about being nice while we deliver a consequence…
The invitation is to make agreements with YOUR children
Not necessarily about the problem we solve, instead it is more about the life skills the kids are practicing inside of the agreement-making
Not about finding a solution that lasts forever – every solution has a shelf life
