Being a teen can be really hard.
I definitely can’t say I remember exactly how it felt to be a teen, and of course, it’s different for teens today.
I do know that some of the time I felt overwhelmed, excited, lonely, social, sad, happy, and a lot more. I still am all of those things sometimes, because I’m human.
Teens have a lot going on.
They spend a lot of time worrying about what other people think of them. They feel stressed and anxious about the future. They overreact and say the wrong thing.
It should. If you see your child doing these things, it means they’re a teenager.
Not only that, it means they’re human. Read that list of things they do again. If you’re like the rest of us, you’ve done at least one of those things today.
Life as a human is challenging at times. Take a moment to remember that that’s true for all of us.
You’re doing it amazingly well, and so is your child.
If you’re lucky, you have support through the challenges. That’s why I’m here for your teen.
