Why won't my Teen speak to me?

Cries of “why won’t my teen talk to me?” rise up around the neighbourhood? It has been going on for generations, so why do so many teens stop confiding or communicating as freely with their parents at this age?

 

On this page, you will find a collection of Why Be You resources, both audios and blogs, that may offer some different perspectives to support you in your quest to halt the spread of 'normal' and embrace quality communication as a foundation for many the years or relationship ahead.

What's going on with Ryan?

My behaviour could easily have been seen as 'rambunctious' and perhaps 'difficult', but I was just trying to work things out for myself...

What do our Children see?

Read our great blog on how we might be perceived by our children, and consider if it is at odds with the 'image' and 'practice' we were hoping to reflect.

Our potential as parents is to role-model through our activity what is possible in our relationships in life...

What do our children see?

A deep dive into how often we feel the need to investigate with meticulous attention everything we are doing wrong, rather than appreciate how much is going well.

Appreciation is like magic, it changes situations in ways that are unexplainable and unimaginable...

ABOUT

Have you ever found the 'rule book' doesn't fit your child or family. So did we. So we decided to make a website that offered practical skills to build a way of living that could be responsive to whatever might present itself in family life.

That way rather than needing a 'rule book' there is a sense of being equipped to deal with whatever situation is in front of you.
