Teenagers Are Starving for More Than Food: Here Are 3 Things All Teens Need Daily! by Sheryl Gould
Teenagers are starving. Not only for food (we know how hungry they are), but also for:
- positive attention
- unconditional love
Unconditional love can turn the most difficult child around. Even if your teen acts like they hate you sometimes, they're starving to know that you accept them for who they are. Teens have a sixth sense when they're being judged and criticized. The world they live in sends them daily messages that they’re not good enough. Did you know that for every negative our kids receive they need five positives to balance it out? Rather than focusing on their negative behavior, look for things that you can affirm them for daily. Show and tell them how much you appreciate them. Write it down. Paste it on their mirror. Watch and see the difference it makes!
