Are you loosing patience with your teen?

Every parent will get this feeling: running low on patience and wanting to throw in the towel...

However, as a mental health therapist, I can assure you it doesn't have to be this way.

Here are three ways to deal with low patience and restore mental peace.

Keep in mind the membership to my website (free) and book called "The lighthouse, a guide to parenting teens" talk more in depth about this topic. Feel free to get more info on my website.

loosing patience with teen

  1. Get a break!

I will go straight to the point with this one: if you are loosing patience with your teen, plan some time away from them!

Organise an activity that will require for you, or them, to be away from the house for a few hours or days.

I know this isn't always easy, but don't hesitate to reach out to friends, family or communities of either you or your teen to make a plan.

2. Build a village and gain guidance.

It is very difficult to raise children all alone. The key is to surround yourself with individuals that can help, assist and guide you, while in your journey of parenting.

The membership offered with my website (free) will do just so. It offers a community of parents, guidance from a psychotherapist specialising in teens. You can also check out my book.

3. Be more of an individual, less of a parent.

Sometimes, being a parent, always having an answer to everything, and being in charge is too much.

You need times where you are just you, an individual that is trying their best to navigate life.

Make some time for you and re-calculate your schedule accordingly.
