3 Reasons Parents & Teens Hate Boundaries, go listen here!

A lot of parents of teens have asked me about setting boundaries lately.

And, I’ve seen a lot of parents make the mistake of trying to use boundaries to control their teens, and the truth is, that just doesn’t work. 

So, I’m putting together a free workshop to help parents like you, set boundaries that actually empower your teen and help the two of you work together.

Since you and so many parents replied to me telling me that “they “YES!” you are interested in attending a FREE workshop with me on Building Better Boundaries WITH Your Teen, I’ve decided to do 3 workshops!

These workshops are for YOU! If you’re listening to this podcast, you’re invited. These workshops are for parents of teens, whether you’re a member of IMPACT Parenting or not!

You can even invite your friends.

Practice Setting Boundaries OVER and OVER!

One of the things I’ve heard a lot from parents when it comes to setting boundaries is something like, “I’m terrible at setting boundaries.” or “I’m just not good at it.”

Well, guess what, . . .

. . . If you don’t practice, you’ll never get good at it.

One of the other things that I often hear about boundaries is something along the lines of, “My teen is terrible at respecting my boundaries,” or “My teen really struggles accepting boundaries.”

Usually, one of the main reasons behind teens being “terrible” at, or struggling with, boundaries is simply a lack of practice. They simply haven’t gotten the reps that they need to really be good at boundaries.

So, in this episode I want to share with you 3 ways that you can PRACTICE boundaries with your teen.

3 Ways to Practice Boundaries with Your Teen

#1 Practice in Conversation

This is one of the most underrated forms of practice ever.

One of the most powerful things you can do to practice boundaries with your teen is to simply talk about it.

Ask empowering questions.

#2 Practice in Good Times

Don’t wait until things are rough. Practice setting boundaries with things are going well.

#3 Practice Boundaries that are Tied to Positive Consequences

Most people think of negative consequences when they think about boundaries, and they completely forget about positive consequences.

It’s much easier to talk about boundaries when you can focus on the reward that your teen will earn by respecting the boundary.

There’s a Better Way to do Boundaries

There is a common belief among parents that boundaries are hard, and they suck, and they always lead to fighting.

It makes sense that parents would think this way, because a lot of parents experienced boundaries this way as teens, and they’ve gone on to handle boundaries similarly to how their parents did.

But, this doesn’t have to be true. In fact, it’s possible to do boundaries in a way that you and your teen both appreciate the boundary and feel like it’s fair and beneficial.

The truth is, if you’re tired of fighting with your teen over boundaries, your teen is most likely tired of fighting with you too! And, as much as you would like your teen to work with you and buy into the boundaries, your teen would like you to work with them and give them a reason to buy into boundaries.

So, do you want to keep fighting with your teen over boundaries that suck, or do you want to start doing boundaries in a better way that’s easy, that will empower your teen, and that will connect you and your teen?
