Why our teenagers crisis help us grow as a person Raising a #teenager

Teenagers push our buttons. We have to face ourselves and are as vulnerable as they are. Despite appearances, they help us grow.

My daughter is a mirror. When she blames me for something, I learn to listen fully to what she says, instead of immediately reacting with anger or upset. I open myself to her with trust and kindness. Every day I create a stronger link with her, made of mutual trust. It is reassuring for me. She can lean on me. Thanks to her, I become a better version of myself, I evolve and get stronger as she gets stronger.
