‘I Can Do This On My Own, Mom!’

When kids hit the middle of their teen years (or sometimes younger), you’ll usually start to hear them say things like ‘I don’t want your help,’ or ‘I wish I lived by myself.’ Often, parents interpret those statements as rude or rebellious — but look deeper! In this episode, Mark Gregston and Wayne Shepherd discuss the indicators that your teen is craving more independence and share why parents need to give kids more chances to be responsible. Tune in for this great talk!
