How to be a Supportive ParentParents
Be a supportive parent! While that may seem like a tall order, it’s easier than you think and completely within your control. You can’t control your teen’s school performance, but you can focus on the learning process over grades. (Pssst, grades improve when learning is celebrated.) You can’t stop failure from happening, but you can help your teen embrace failure and learn from mistakes. You can’t make your teen good at everything, but you can teach them how to ask for help. Set high expectations, encourage exploration, and help your teen cultivate their strengths. You rock at this parenting thing!
