Description

This mother is worried about her 14 year old son, who has gotten into some habits that she and society disapproves of. Is he headed down a horrible path, or is something else going on? This call is relevant to all parents of teenagers (current and future), and well, the teenagers themselves. Quick warning: This may be the most politically incorrect call I’ve ever done (I don’t care), because I tell the truth. It might be interesting to listen to this WITH your teenager and see what incredibly interesting conversations come up.

This call ended up being a little longer than normal, but I wasn’t willing to cut out even a single word.

Topics covered on this call

  • She feels like if she could just move to a different area, his troubles would go away
  • Why is she attracting this situation to HER reality?
  • How can she match up with a different version of her son?
  • Her son has gotten into smoking pot and skipping school. Has she lost control?
  • What our desire to €œcontrol€ our children stems from and why it’s a losing battle
  • Why we don’t have to feel badly about that (control isn’t needed)
  • Why seeing teenagers as children is a big mistake
  • Why today’s teenagers seem €œworse€ than past generations
  • How to see and honor your teenager’s wisdom (yes, they have wisdom)
  • The truth about smoking marijuana (yes, I know I’ll get some shtick for this, I don’t care. I tell it like it is)
  • Why demonizing alcohol and marijuana shuts down all authentic conversation, and what to do instead
  • What’s really happening when people €œruin their lives€ with alcohol and drugs and how to check if that’s what’s happening with her son
  • The one mindset shift that will instantly improve communication with teenagers
  • Why her son is skipping school and why discipline isn’t going to be effective
  • How focusing on her son’s passions can help him do better at school overall
  • Getting some perspective on the importance of doing well in school, and why many kids today just aren’t buying it anymore
  • Counteracting his teacher’s limiting beliefs
  • Why most people giving advice to teenagers aren’t qualified to do so
  • The best way to uplift and inspire her son
  • Guiding her son versus just trying to tell him what to do
  • How to work herself into a much better feeling place before trying to guide her son
