6 Listening Mistakes We Make With Teens

Have you ever found yourself trying really hard to be a better listener when your teenager is talking but rarely feeling like you’ve had success.  I’ve discovered that many times, I was making some important listening mistakes and I didn’t even know it.

As a parent, really listening to your teen can get pretty dicey at times.

We actually can make the issue worse by how we listen (or not), and how we choose to show up in our teen’s lives when they need us the most.

You can hone your skills by knowing some of the listening mistakes with your teen you  may already be making.
