I have a confession… and I’m coming clean…
Have you ever felt the pressure to be the perfect Mum?
To socialise and talk about your teen’s achievements but to hide away any apparent failures…
To struggle on your own because you don’t want to admit the chaos and conflict that goes on at home…
Do you think that you will be blamed if your teen is struggling?
Do you blame yourself?
Are you plagued with guilt if you lose your temper and yell?
When you’re stressed it can be a cycle of bad communication… harsh reactions… guilt… and then more stress…
You may have missed me in your inbox last week… that’s because I wasn’t there… this was the first week I’ve skipped writing a blog all year… so now I’m sharing with you what I know about how to get back on track…
Has your teen gone off the rails with their schooling... have their marks dropped… are they not living up to their potential… or what you know they are capable of achieving… ??
Are you in conflict with your teen over their inability to get back on track… their stubborn refusal to do what you know needs to be done… ??
Do you worry that this conflict will permanently damage your relationship with them… ??
Are they stressed about school… assessments and exams… are they frozen in fear… ??
Are your words falling on deaf ears… ??
