One example of stepping back and sideline supporting our teenagers is this:
One of The Real Parents' team member's teenager is adamant that the school rules get in the way of relationships between teachers and students. For example, instead of the teachers asking: "How are you", they just say: "Pull your socks up".
Yet, this teen is clear that wearing her socks down doesn’t equate to low grades…!
Super tricky for our team member who is saying to her teen: "I’ll support you, but you need to model what you say."
Meanwhile, detentions are being issued for socks. We’ll keep you updated!
