(Click title to listen)PODCAST SCRIPT:
Moms and Dads often bear the brunt of anger unleashed by their teen. Like a son who’s set off by the dumbest things. Sound familiar?
Anger is often the impulsive emotional response from a kid who’s denied what he wants. When your teen is frustrated, he flies off the handle!
Well, boys truly want to grow up to be men… but that process is often hampered by parents who aren’t ready to hand over freedom. Moms and dads who nag less and let a young man make choices actually transfer responsibility to their kids.
Mom, Dad … he’ll never grow up if you keep spoon feedin’ his every desire. Let your son, your daughter, make their own decisions. Their painful mistakes will teach them lessons they could never learn from a lecture.
