You raise a cute little child, all sweetness and round. And a couple of years later you find yourself sharing a home with an edgy, mouthy teenager who rolls his or her eyes at you more than you can count. And if that's not enough, you find yourself in a constant struggle with this little dude. You both enter endless cycles of rants, screams, and banging doors.
Why is that? And does it have to be like that? (spoiler: it doesn't)
In this episode, I break down the Drama of the Teenage Brain, helping you understand what is going on in your teenage kid's mind, and why they act so weird.
- What's the difference between the emotional and thinking brain
- Why your teenage child thinks like an adult and acts like a child
- How to approach your child in times of anger
