I have parents of teens sharing with me on a regular basis....Frustratedly sharing. And I find patterns constantly emerging....the parents are usually super busy, and not taking any deliberate steps to create one-on-one intimacy, they're excessively focused on what's "wrong," and they actually expect their children to be like them or do things in the same way they would do them 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈
(excuse me while I puke 😝)
In order to create space in which kids can feel safe and free to share, well, you first of all have to show them that frankly you give a damn. Look for what they're doing "right." And then allow them to be who they are. Now obviously we're help to help guide them, but they never came here to be anybody but themselves. And folks, you truly make yourself into a Superior Asshole (SA) when you think Anybody should be like you!! We can, however, as parents help our children become the best version of themselves. In order to do that, we have to truly Know them, not know who we think they are or who we'd like them to be. Our children will show us exactly who they are, if we allow them to. And that comes with listening. •
