Parenting a teenager can be quite an adventure. Your formerly compliant, loving child may be transforming right before your eyes and it can feel very scary. The terrain is unknown and changes constantly. At this pivotal time in a teenager’s life, he actually craves connection with his parents but also seeks freedom and space to experiment and discover who he really is and where he belongs in the world. While all of this is transpiring, your teen is experiencing intense academic and social pressures, enormous physical changes, and often untamed mood swings related to hormonal changes. During all of this turmoil, your teen is trying to find his place, his worth and his voice. For the parent, this time in life can seem out of control and scary.
So how does a conscious parent navigate these teenage years successfully? How can a parent use this period in his child’s life as a huge opportunity for growth and connection? How can a parent avoid inadvertently pushing his teen towards the very behaviors that are feared in the first place?
Join mindful parenting coach, Ellen Gottlieb, Founder of Enlightened Parenting, and begin to learn essential parenting tools and strategies to allow the parent to navigate these tumultuous years with confidence and equanimity. Learn how to reduce the anxiety, foster deeper connection, enhance self-confidence, and cultivate a relationship of trust.
