Mediation With Teenage Children

As your children cross into the teenage years, it can feel like you are entering a whole new world.  You yearn to hold tight, stay connected, know what’s going on, and establish and enforce boundaries.  Your child yearns for space, freedom, autonomy and independence.  Sharing may feel like the last thing on his or her mind.

It can feel like you are walking on eggshells or running across hot coals – whatever you say seems to be heard, or interpreted, as wrong.

You may have different perspectives on:

  • Communication
  • Curfews
  • Homework
  • Screen time
  • Privacy and space
  • Choice of friends
  • Dating
  • Work
  • Driving
  • Sleepovers
  • Activities
  • Class selections
  • College planning
  • Family time and/or vacations
  • Responsibilities/chores

Sometimes having a conversation with a mediator can help open communication.  Our mediators are skilled at connecting with people of all ages, even when communication has been tense.  We help parents and children bridge the communication gap and consider options for resolving their differences in ways that recognize what’s important to both.
