YOU JUST DON’T WANT ME TO HAVE ANY FUN!

Have you ever had your teen say, “You just don’t want me to have any fun?” As our children move into their teens, it can start to feel like we are on opposite sides. They seem to see us as the opposition rather than as the person who always has their back even when we disagree with their behavior. I’m not sure that there is a way to change this. But I have found that by reminding them often that we just want good things for them, they will at least know that we aren’t just out to ruin their fun. So, although they are not likely to appreciate all of our advice or rules, they will know they are loved, and that we just want the best for them.
