have you ever snapped at youth?
nagged without knowing why they said or did something?
been too frustrated, stressed or lost to talk with them?
You're not alone.
Being an “adult” can be exhausting, especially with youth. Their behaviors can trigger us to shout demands and commands instead of being silent to listen and learn. Which is why only 1 in 4 youth know an adult they can trust. Without one, they risk developing ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences); childhood trauma that leads to adulthood drama.
