How To Help Your Teen Build Assertiveness
Does your teen worry about saying “No”? That they might appear ‘mean’ if they don’t say “Yes”?
Unfortunately, many of us grow up not learning how to, or being given permission to say “No”. Many teens ‘feel bad’ for putting their own desires above those of others. That is passive behavior that will not help them build self confidence or set healthy boundaries.
Assertiveness training helps build confidence and teaches that it’s okay to say “No”, that saying “No” isn’t a mean thing to do to another person. Assertiveness training empowers teens to understand that they are in control of themselves, not other people.
