Long-Term Parenting Questions

  1. How do I help my teen become capable?
  2. How do I get into my teen’s world and support them in their developmental process?
  3. How do I help my teen feel belonging and significance?
  4. How do I help my teen learn social and life skills such as problem solving and the ability to identify feelings and communicate about those feelings in words?
  5. How do I begin to honor that my teen has different ideas about what is best for her/him?
  6. How can my teen and I use this problem as an opportunity to learn from our mistakes? How can we learn and try again instead of giving up when we make mistakes?

Today, Joyful Courage is about the willingness to use my skills, even when my reactive self wants to blame or shame. It’s about taking the high road, because that is a road that leads to the best possible outcome for me AND the people in my life.
