C: My teens are talking rudely to me
T: I can’t control them, I can only control myself and I don’t know what to do about it. I have really bad boundaries with my kids.
F: Frustrated, powerless
A: Talk to them about it, spend energy calling their attention to but let it gunnysack
R: Gunnysack finally explodes and I end up really upset
C:My teens are talking rudely to me
T: They are teens; they are in the normal range for their developmental stage, I can set limits.
F: More acceptance, more empowerment
A: Stop talking and be clear on the the rules/consequences
R: More peace at home and within myself
Would appreciate any help you can give me on this.
