The disciplining of teens is a really tricky concept as we are talking about individuals who are very nearly adults so discipline has to be age appropriate … but this is not as easy as some may think. For those of you who watched my first blog, you may remember that I discussed with my eldest daughter, Georgia, what teens really want and what they don’t want from their parents. Interestingly, she made a strong point about disliking the mobile phone being taken away as a form of punishment … as I am sure many teens would agree!
Based on this concept, I consulted with Sarah and Jayne, two experts who specialise in pre-teen and teen behaviour from BE Integrative Therapy and produced the following vlog focusing on the very issue about appropriate discipline of teens who are nearly adults. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them and learnt heaps! I hope that anyone going through similar issues with their teens will also gain some perspective and guidance, as I did.
Sarah and Jayne have very kindly agreed to work with me on a regular basis providing advice around teen issues so if any parents out there would like to see a particular issue discussed please get in touch.
Thank you so much for watching … and a huge thank you to Sarah and Jayne for agreeing to help me with this project … just saying!
