You bring children into this world not to control them to satisfy your insecurities, but for GOD TO EXPERIENCE ITSELF.
so many people suffering from headaches and migraines and have those who come to see me for that reason. DO you know that main reason for the headaches and migraines is ability to maintain boundaries and feeling that you are out of control in different situations. That is why it is so common in teenagers. Teenage years are so intense for a human being, that is the time when ID, Identity stars really coming through and questions Who am I and how I relate to others around me, especially family comes about.
The more controlling parents teenager has the more rebellion there will be, for the teenager is coming into its full bloom identifying with its own personality and trates and they FIT into this world.
And if the parent is not capable of simply providing space and being a loving and guiding space, instead of being the kind of parent that says MY WAY OR THE HIGH WAY, the kind of parents that choosing kids colleges when kids is in middle school… that kind of parent, also known as HELICOPTER parents.
LET YOUR CHILDREN BE THEIR OWN.
Yes you brought the into this world, for one reason. FOR GOD TO EXPERIENCE ITSELF!
