The Turbulent Teens

Navigating the turbulent TEENS!

Teens cry for understanding – for themselves and from others. Ineffective communication between teens and parents can often shatter a family.

LifeStar Counseling can help:

      • Nurture teen girls to become strong women
      • You to learn to love an unloving daughter
      • Bridge the communication gap between parents and teens

With every generation it seems that the pressure increases for young people trying to find their way through the maze of social, media, educational, internal, and economic pressures. It is easy to get lost in the sea of trying to maintain a daily equilibrium. While the teen years can be so exciting, so enriching and so full of new discoveries, it can also be full of pain, betrayal, loneliness, abuse, loss, alienation, and a host of other dark emotional experiences.

What do you do when you can no longer communicate with your teen without it exploding into a huge fight? What do you do when your teenager is flunking out of school and they don’t even care? What do you do when you see your teen carry heavy emotional burdens that weigh down their every step? More than ever before, teens are experiencing depression and anxiety at an alarming rate. The biggest cry from teens is that someone would really listen to them and understand them. But often times the harder one tries to listen and understand, the worse it gets with the teen stomping off saying something like, “I hate you! Just leave me alone!”

Having someone come alongside parents and young teens during these turbulent times can make a big difference. A neutral presence can help navigate these stormy places as well as offer understanding, compassion, tools and resources.
