Tips on Teens, too

Teens are definitely not my forte!  Their minds are just not making sense.  You would think that a person could listen and profit from another’s past experiences.  I had only hoped so anyway.  I did not want my kids to have to repeat any of my past mistakes.  But that is not how it works.  The teenage mind seems senseless in its impulsitivity.  Or is it?  A dear friend sent me a link to a wonderful article on the teen mind.  I hope it gives you some insight as well.  Or at least puts part of you at ease reassuring you that this is all part of His plan! http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/10/teenage-brains/dobbs-text/2  If you have time read the first page, too.  It is a little more technical!

        Whereas the major developmental task of teens is to beomce competent and independent enough to take care of themselves in college, the job of their parents is to begin to let go. This gradual shift for both is best accomplished when the reward for taking on more responsibilty is greater freedom. And as peer acceptance beomces more important, encouraging our kids to let us know what’s going on, without too much interference, allows them to try on new behaviors and attitudes while still having the comfort and security of home as well as our emotional support.

      This book is fabulous. I’m not in the habit of wnritig reviews but felt I couldn’t resist in this circumstance. Teenagers are such a mystery! This book really helped me develop a better appreciation and understanding of what it is like to be a teenager in today’s world. I also felt it provided an honest conversation from teens in their own words rather than lecturing to us absently about the topic. I feel I have a much better handle on what’s going on with my teenagers.The author writes in a very candid, down-to-earth style and I found myself unable to put the book down. I recommend this book to teens and parents alike!
