behavior is not your fault!

Parents often think that their teen’s disturbed and outrageous behavior is a reflection of their parenting methods. They feel as if they failed as parents and that they are responsible for how their child turned out.

In actuality,  parents have little to do with the way their teenager is acting. It’s simply natural for teenagers to go through phases of extreme mood swings. So instead of blaming yourself or your child for the circumstances, focus on helping your teen through this phase.

Believe it or not but parents have an immense influence on their children. Even though your child is usually mad or annoyed by you, the reality is that your child still yearns for your love, attention, support and approval. Now in order to help your teen, you need to find an adequate way to connect with them. Find a suitable time to chat to them and let them know that you are there to listen and help. You need to talk to them when they aren’t in a huffy mood.

For instance, you can try having a little conversation with them during meal times. Don’t be discouraged if your child chooses not to talk or simply responds with singular words. Eventually there will come a time when they’ll want to talk and all you need to do at that moment is to be there for them!

Teens hardly know how to deal with their emotions maturely!

their emotions maturely!

When teenagers can’t cope with their feelings maturely, they often tend to masquerade it with extreme outbursts of anger. Emotions such as shame, frustration, anxiety, hurt, depression, fear or helplessness, they all can cause a teenager to become exasperated and lash out.

Teens usually have trouble identifying and understanding the depth of their emotions and generally can’t really articulate or express these feelings responsibly. During this particular stage, parents must practice patience and need to focus their energies at helping their teenagers cope with anger in a more conducive way. They can also seek the help of a business motivational speaker who is trained to deal with matters like these.

In order to help your teens deal with anger, you need to set up some proper ground rules and punishments. Teenagers require a structure and need to be disciplined properly otherwise, they simply go completely out of control. That is why you need to establish some strict rules and make your teen aware of the ensuing penalties if they aren’t respected. Explain to them that though it’s ok to feel infuriated, there however are some improper ways of expressing it. So let them know that if they lash out and fail to express their anger in a constructive way, they will have to deal with consequences such as being grounded. Don’t pay your business motivational speaker for nothing. Get the advice you need.

A Professional Speaker Suggests Having a Day Care Center Near Your Workplace

Professional speaker suggests having somewhere closeby where your parent employees can leave their babies for reduced stress and improved productivity in the workplace.

A professional speaker suggests having day care close by where your parent employees can leave their small children for reduced stress and improved productivity in the workplace.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

Professional speakers suggest having a day care center near your workplace. Some of your employees are parents taking care of kids less than 5-years old. Some are even moms that are nursing their babies that are less than two of age. It can be difficult for these parents to work because they don’t have anyone to take care of their children nor anywhere to leave their children for extended hours.

Having a day care near your workplace will help ease your parent employees’ minds about their children. The closer they feel to their children, the more comfortable they feel. A comfortable and happy worker is a productive worker in the workplace. Professional speakers also reminds that these parents can, during their lunch breaks, just go to where their babies are to check on them instead of worrying about their children and increasing their stress levels.

If there are no nearby day care centers in your workplace, you can consider building a clinic and expanding it to accommodate taking care of babies. This might even be a better idea because the parents won’t even have to leave your building. This will also improve your employee’s loyalty to your company as you’re accommodating for their needs.

Babies are one of the exceptions of separating their personal and professional lives because parents think about their children a lot, and relieving them of these worries can improve their productivity in the workplace. This is why a professional speaker suggests having a day care center near your workplace is a good idea.
