Does your teen have an annoying habit?
Like playing with their hair ALL THE TIME?
Wearing too much cologne?
The ability to multi task like a digital ninja?
There is a reason they are engaging in these annoying habits, they are growing and discovering themselves. Their gifts and their talents and their individuality....believe it or not.
It's okay that it annoys you, it's okay you don't understand and it's okay you think it's weird. That doesn't mean you don't love your teen. Try these three things to cope:
Stay humble - you are weird too.
Get curious - instead of frustrated get curious about why they might being doing what they are doing.
Use humor - laugh about it, it's the best way to cope.
