The busy lifestyle can be brutal for parents, especially with children who are becoming independent.  This course has great practical help for parents of children age 11 and up.

If you’re parenting with a partner, ask them to watch or listen to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.

This course is also great in groups – start by checking it out alone, but then invite someone else or a couple to join  you.  When you’ve been meeting in a group for a little while, register your group here.

Day 6 - Home - A Place of Safety and Acceptance

Parenting Teenagers

We look at the importance of our home being a place of safety and acceptance.

•Our family can be a shelter from the different storm our teenagers will face: disappointment, failure, rejection
•When they are hurt, they need our comfort and consolation
•We can demonstrate this practically by allowing them to talk and by listening to them
•Effective communication with teens requires time
•Discussing and debating with teenagers is more effective than lecturing and judging them.


Question:
What changes would you like to make to your family’s home life, in the area of safety and acceptance?

      Hi Ryan,
      Unfortunately, I’ve missed a few days. However, now I’m back.
      Mind you, I am now being technically challenged.
      I’m in Parenting Teens and can not get any clip up except for the first one. I want the sixth one.
      I’ve tried clicking on various different ones with no luck.
      Please help.
      Clare

        Glad to have you back on track! The clips are working, so perhaps you ran into a temporary glitch. Do try again and let me know what happens.
