The Parent Envy Trap

 

Welcome to JellyGeneration's Parent-52 Series

You don't intend to.  But you compare your teen to others. It causes you to worry "why isn't my teen like so-and-so" OR "can my teen do what their teen does?" 

As parents we WANT to STOP the comparison game.  But how?

This is a special Parent-52 Episode.  It's JUST FOR PARENTS.

In the above episode(video), you will learn:

  • How we end up on the "envy rat race", an endless cycle
  • Why your teen is just as amazing as the teen down the street
  • Learn 3 strategies to retrain your brain to reduce comparisons and envy
  • BONUS:  these very techniques can be taught to your teen as well.  They need this even more than we do.  

Experience Joy

The above techniques can help you experience parental joy.  You can push those negative thoughts out and replace them with better ones.   The "envy trap" gifts us the gift of angst.  Let's replace that with joy!

If you have a teen and want teaching techniques specifically designed to help them launch more successfully (these episodes cover what generally academics can't), then click the link at the bottom of this episode and you will get it in your inbox each week.  It's 52 episodes full of powerful parent moves.  

Next week?  Careers!  Help your teen find their way NOW.  

 Have a wonderful week and as we always say:

You CAN Have Success in the Middle of it ALL

 

Bye for now
