Today I’m talking about how to begin early preventing risky behaviors in your teens. Click to watch.
Note: The sound and picture are misaligned. My apologies.
A couple of important take-aways:
- Teens see themselves as adults, so “what is okay for you is okay for me” in their minds.
- Teens will model your behavior–good and bad.
- The Law of Magnification- Teens lack the ability to regulate behaviors, so think of them taking your bad habit and 10x it.
Raising a strong, healthy teen starts with you. It’s never too late to set a goal, give up a bad habit or begin a good habit. I know you can do it. You may need support.
