You are not alone, parents in our church and all around you are going through the same season of life, so don’t despair. This month’s online parenting class provides you some great guidance.
The power struggle that you and others go through during these years is a normal part of the maturing process, as parents work to balance responsibility with teaching.
There are simple ways to avoid the power struggle in your home:
1.) Give chances to build trust and learn from failure
2.) Set goals and expectations
3.) Make choices about priorities
Teens learn best when given power slowly and as they earn it. Take the opportunity this week to give your teen a new responsibility and power, and at the end of the week take some time to talk with them about how it went and what they learned.
Praying for you and your teen. If you need more hints and helps, let me know. I would love to talk to you more this week.
