My high energy toddler could run circles around all of us and repeat back every detail of the movie he watched just once. I was “Mr. Credible” and Cameron was “Dash.” We would play pretend characters just like The Incredibles movie for entire afternoons.
That love of movies never went away. We bought a membership to a local art movie theater so we could enjoy time together. We can talk all night about the plot and characters. Cameron will share the latest storyline from a video game I’ve never watched and somehow he’s captured my full interest through the description. He’s the same person, just a lot bigger!
This video captures a lot of what it’s like to parent a teenager these days.
I try so hard to focus on the good stuff. This article from Dr. Ken Ginsburg explains why the good stuff matters even more now as a parent of a teenager. I really appreciate how the Center for Parent and Teen Communication built a real guide to parenting when I felt I was really winging it up until now! Hopefully
How are you navigating this world of teen communication? What is your big ‘aha’ moment?
