More nirvana. Less drama.
Parenting teens is like a kickass nineties playlist. Wild transitions, raw angst, and unexpected moments of reverberating depth.
"This isn't what I signed up for." —Parents of teens everywhere.
Remember when you brought that little, perfect baby home from the hospital all those years ago? Sure, life was challenging back then. The insomnia, the tantrums, the crying.... But those baby smiles, and squishy knees, toddler cuddles made up for all of that. As they grew, you found yourself in that comfortable space between your child having enough independence that you didn't have to watch them like a hawk, but also not so much independence that you have to worry about them constantly.
The teenage years. You will likely have noticed an increase of emotional outbursts, risky behaviour, mental health challenges, information overload about sex— and that's just YOU! Somehow you have to manage all of that for your teen, too! (Not to mention how desperately you want to make the most of the precious years you have left with your child at home.)
"You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser.
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger.
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together.
All I know, all I know is...."
...the Happy Families "Smells Like Teen Spirit Summit" will save the day.
