Parenting is hard! Especially when parenting a teenager. If you have a teenager who is mean to you, don’t be alarmed, there is a reason behind it.
Don’t Take it Personally When Your Kid is Mean to You
When your child is mean to you, it doesn’t mean they don’t love you, it doesn’t mean they hate you, it doesn’t mean they’ll be mean forever.
When your kid is mean to you, it is because they have another responsibility. This responsibility is to separate from you. The easiest way to separate from you is to be mean. When they’re mean, it causes you to back off, and it causes tension which is putting something between you two.
