When you position yourself as the learner, it changes how you interact with your teen!
“That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way.”
~ Doris Lessing
Principles of Being a Relationship Hero
#1 Be 100% Responsible for YOUR Relationship with Them
- If you’re like most people, you’ve blamed your relationship on the other person in the relationship.
- “If my teen would . . . “
- “If they would start . . . “
- You are responsible for how you feel towards the other person in your relationship.
- Relationsponsibility (Joey’s made up word)
#2 Relationship Hero vs Relationship Victim
- Victims and sidekicks have to rely on somebody else.
- Save yourself in the relationship.
#3 Be the Change You Want to See
- Want your teen to be more confident? You start by BEing more confident.
- Want your teen to be more respectful, You start by BEing more respectful.
#4 Your Relationships are a Reflection of Your Relationship with Yourself
- Want a better relationship with your teen? Improve your relationship with yourself.
- This may mean that you will need to change some of your self-talk, which will impact how you start talking with your teen.
#5 How YOU Think about Them, How YOU Think about Yourself, and How YOU Think they think.
- How you think about YOURSELF in the relationship.
- How you think about THEM in the relationship.
- How you think THEY think about YOU in the relationship
