Arguments, hassles with your teen?

 For those of you experiencing hassles with your teenager – realize that almost every argument or flare-up – is them trying to prevent you from invading their rapidly evolving “new self.”  Figuratively speaking, it’s like them avoiding an invading army - you… They’re trying to stand their ground and maintain this new self. 

Best strategy?  ASK, DON’T TELL.  The more you TELL, the more they’ll fight you off or back - - - “I’ve gotta be me” [old song]. 

The more you ASK them, the more you’ll convey respect for their magnificent thinking machine – that brain that’s growing daily, even minute by minute. 

Nurture their thinking [by ASKING] – you’ll all come out ahead.
