Parents can mimic their teens without even realizing it. I coach Anne and Bill for a second time as we discuss how their son disgusts and annoys them with his rude behavior and self importance. They want him to start seeing things like they do. They want him to make progress, which is creating the exact opposite experience than they want.
Getting stuck on what he’s doing wrong is leading them to similar behavior that they don’t even see until today. Maybe you’re invalidating yourself like they are? Come listen and find out.
