Raising Teens in a World of Anxiety
I was on a walk with my wife. And naturally, we were discussing our kids, particularly our teens. I’ll be honest, having teens has been the greatest challenge of our parenting so far. This is not a lie or an exaggeration, but more of a rubbing my temples each night, trying to figure out how I went so wrong as a parent.
I will admit, the hardest part of all, for me, as a father of three with an anxiety disorder, is accepting that I don’t have as much control as I used too.
And yes, I know that makes me sound like a controlling father, and I honestly don’t believe I am. What I’m trying to get across is that anxiety, for the most part, is about control.
