Hold your tongue…#listen to your #teen

If you’re blessed to have a teen that actually talks to you, wants to talk to you, don’t blow it by talking too much yourself. As a parent you want to protect your child. You don’t want to see them make the same mistakes you did or worse. So, when your teen starts disclosing there’s a tendency to correct them or tell them what they should have done. You also want to tell them to never ever to do that again or better yet stay away from those bad apple kids. Before you start ranting, stop and collect you
r thoughts. You want your teen top keep talking to you and blow ups will surely halt that. Yes, absolutely guide your child down the right path but do it in a calm manner. We want to affirm and accept our children. We have to be a safe place for them.
