This is the first of an eight-part interview series I conducted with Amy Frisch, a wonderful therapist who has been leading teenage girls’ groups for over twenty years.
In this segment, we discuss teenagers’ challenges as they leave their childhood behind.
Amy calls it a “dark tunnel,” which sounds dramatic, but you are leaving behind what you’ve always known, and you don’t know exactly who you will be as a young adult or how people will receive you.
It’s a reminder that adolescence is not easy, and maybe that’s why when I talk with most adults and tell them that I run a summer camp for teens, they often say, “I don’t think I would want to have to relive those years again.”
Amy offers parents some great advice that I know will help your teenager on this journey through “the dark tunnel.”
And maybe your child will look back on his or her teenage years someday and be reminded of how supportive you were as a parent.
Let’s listen more than we talk. I hope you enjoy our short video above. If you haven’t opted-in to see the entire series, here’s the form again to subscribe.
