Dads Never Make Sense

Parents, when it comes to disciplining your teen…you want to stay away from nagging and lecturing. 👀
Most parents tend to communicate through repetition, which is needed before the teenage years. BUT, what was once an effort to help them through multiple reminders, now irritates them in a sentence. 😬
We know it can be exasperating when children do things they know they’re not supposed to do. It’s tempting to lecture them. We want to share our wisdom! We hope our kids will have an “Aha!” moment, see the error of their ways, and never make that mistake again. 🙌 Maybe if we explain it long enough and thoroughly enough, our point will sink in! However lecturing just like nagging doesn’t work.
Let’s try asking good questions, so we can help them think through difficult situations, and they can move forward in positive ways.
Looking for different ways to discipline and communicate with your teens? Sign up for one of our Parental Advisory webinars! Link is in the bio! 📲
