The lovely stage of adolescence that we’ve all gone through seems to be a breeze when we’re younger, but once we become parents and reach the teen years, it’s not so easy. Teenagers are a whole new stage of parenthood that can test your patience and strength.
Teenagers are often reluctant to talk about their feelings, which makes things even harder. They may also pose some very awkward questions about your divorce. Questions you’re not ready to answer. However hard things get, the bottom line is that your teenager needs you during this time of transition.
We live in a shiny world full of high expectations, and since we face them ourselves, we also set the same for our kids. Frankly, setting these expectations can be, at times, overwhelming for the young minds, and if you suspect that’s what’s happening to your teen, here’s something to help.
Psychologists spend many hours talking with clients about how they should understand the hormonal changes and social horrors that teenage girls go through. People often try to be cool and understanding and use the verbiage they read about or see on television.
Countless parents around the globe struggle to fulfil their parenting responsibilities, and while that’s common and okay, the guilt that comes with it is not. If you too, are a parent, trying to raise your kid into a good, happy human being, and feel guilty for any possible reason, so much so that it is affecting you more than it should, here’s a bit of help.
Is parenting getting the worst out of you? Are the highs and lows of raising your little one proving to be too much for you to handle? Bringing in mindfulness into your daily parenting rituals can help- in ways much more than you can imagine.
