Mary Eschen

In this episode targeted toward parents of teens we'll learn how to deal with disrespect in our home.  As part of dealing with disrespect we learn what happens to our teens and tweens when they get upset.  We learn about the brain science behind the teen brain that makes maintaining respect in our homes more difficult. 

We discuss the ways in which parents react to disrespect and how it doesn't work. 

We will cover how waiting until the emotional moment has passed and putting up with the disrespect for a while will be the magic weapon we'll use to gain control of respect once again.  Once we are all calm then we will be able to have rational discussions with our teens and get them to put positive energy back into our relationships creating the respect that we're looking for.
