Living with teenagers doesn't have to be hell
Can you remember when you were a teenager? Do you remember how terribly intensely you felt everything? If you were happy, you were ecstatic. If you were down, you were about ready to commit suicide. Do you remember how alien adults were - like zombies haunting your life? Was that your future? But now it's your turn to be living with teenagers. And it's not easy, is it? How do you even talk to teenagers?
Parenting teens is tough compared with babies and children
Parenting the teenager is one of the most difficult parts of being a parent. Babies are challenging, but they don't stomp round the house yelling that they hate you. (On the contrary - it's very clear that you are the sunshine of their life.) You may have dealt with toddler tantrums galore - but your toddler never got in a mood that lasted a whole week. Even the trials of early school years just pale beside the storms of raising teenagers.
What do teenagers really want?
The difficulty that faces teens (and the adults trying to deal with them) is the passage they must make through an uncomfortable 'in-between' state. A teenager is not a child. A teenager is not an adult. But letting go of being a child and fully entering into adulthood is neither easy nor quick. And to the teenager, it appears as something else altogether. The teenager is not interested in being an 'adult'. The teenager wants to be 'me'.
Being a teenager is as tough as parenting a teenager
Teenagers are notorious for self-obsession, but it makes sense in the light of this quest for individuality. Naivety and lack of experience render this quest extremely difficult. They will act it out through rebellion (against parents) on the one hand, and conformity (with peers) on the other. As neither path really leads to 'individuality', they suffer immense frustration. Is it any wonder it's so hard to get on with teenagers?
What you can do to make raising teens easier all round
So if you have to raise or deal with teenagers, what can you do to make life easier for everyone?
Well, firstly, you can ensure that you inform yourself about adolescent development, so that you understand the physical and psychological processes which are taking place. Much of teen behavior is fully explicable in terms of their developmental stage. But explicable doesn't necessarily mean excusable. So, secondly, you can equip yourself psychologically to handle the process more satisfactorily.
And how can you do that?
Use hypnosis to find the way to get on with your teens
Living with teenagers is an audio hypnosis session which offers you a highly effective way to bring about instant improvement in your relations with your teenagers.
Living with teenagers will not only tell you about what, exactly, is going on in the brain of a teenager. It will also help you understand your own reactions. And through powerful hypnotic techniques, it will help you modify those reactions in ways which you choose, so that you can look forward to actually enjoying life with your teenagers.
