5 Tips To Work Through Conflict With Your Teen
Parents👋, are you struggling with conflicts with your teen? Don’t worry, it’s normal! Here are 5️⃣ tips on how to work through it together:
👉 Listen to your teen’s views and try to sort out conflict calmly. Remember: everyone gets stressed!
👉 Never discuss an issue while you are angry. Walk away, take a breath and calm down — you can talk with your teen about it later.
👉 Avoid power struggles. With the world feeling unpredictable and options looking limited right now, teens might be struggling to be in control. As difficult as it can be in the moment, empathize with their desire to assert control in a scary time, rather than attempting to fight back or overpower it.
👉 Be honest and transparent with your teen: you can let them know that you are experiencing extra stress as well. Showing them how you deal with your own difficult feelings can help them know their feelings are okay.
👉 When there is conflict, take some time to reflect on how you and your teen can resolve it. You can discuss these reflections with your teen, so they see how you are processing ideas.
Remember, conflicts can be opportunities to deepen your relationship with your teen. Keep calm and work through it together 💪
