Be Vulnerable With Your Teen
Ignore your mobile device, close the computer, switch off the television, and find your vulnerability line. Those first three steps show you’re present and listening. The last step shows that you’re a human, not a robot, who also sometimes makes mistakes. Show that humanity, but stick to the right side of the line. What do we mean? If you talk about a situation where you took an unsafe or immoral risk, it could backfire in the future. So think through what you’re sharing before you share it, and choose a safe vulnerable moment.
