Teen life can be filled with so much drama. They face so many challenges to belong and be accepted by their peers, while trying to figure out and develop healthy friendships. Part of our role as parents is to model what healthy looks like. We all have been hurt by words and actions of others, we all have had bad days, but it doesn’t give us the right to be mean or cruel to others as a way to deal with the pain. In this week’s podcast, Bethany talks about how to create a drama and bully free zone starting at home with your teens.
We all at one time or another are guilty of judging others for their actions, beliefs, choices, and disagreements. When we fall prey to judgement we shut the door on true connection because we can become blinded by our own perceptions of truth. Listen as Bethany shares how it is possible to love even when you disagree; show compassion in the midst of differences; and bridge the great divide when you seek to understand.
