New Parents Blog

Updated: Feb 13, 2019

Each week, Story of Hope Counseling will share a link to a good article about parent / teen relationships. Michelle and Josh do this so that you might find encouragement, insight and hope in your parenting journey.

This week, follow the link to find "30 Ways To Stay Connected With Your Teen". Here's an excerpt:

20. Ask your teen to teach you something.

Teens want to be more mature. What could be more grown-up than teaching your parents something? You'd be surprised how much your teen knows that you don't know. Sure, much of it relates to electronics or social media. But she's likely to be learning things at school that you'd find fascinating, so you might also let her tell you what she's just learned about Hemingway, or the Roman Empire.

I'm not so sure about Hemingway, but if my daughter or son wanted to teach me about him, I'd sure give it a try.
