Dealing With Your Teen’s Hurt Feelings

A Note From the LA Teen Therapist & Life Skills Coach

When people hurt your teen’s feelings, or let them down, help them see this as an opportunity to move toward the kind of life they want to experience. – Sandra

HOLDING A POSITIVE FOCUS
If long time friends seem to be growing apart from you, this does not mean that you are unlovable, or that you will never speak to them again. Sometimes people and situations change and we need to say goodbye.

DON’T FOCUS ON FEAR
It is understandable for you to try and protect yourself from pain by being hesitant about starting new relationships. However, making new friends prove themselves over and over is an exhausting task to ask of them.

TRY REACHING OUT INSTEAD
Try to see the challenging situations from a more neutral perspective, trusting that in every moment, each person is doing their best. Focus on seeing the positive qualities in others. Practice being more gentle with yourself.

Note: If your teen is struggling socially or emotionally, I can help you to discover the cause and remedy it. I invite you take that critical next step, and allow me to demonstrate the support I can offer to you and your family.

… EMPOWERING TEENS TO BE THEIR BEST SELVES.

“The best example of Sandra’s work is in my daughter’s renewed enthusiasm and attitude towards life. My daughter now sees every problem as one that can be solved, every uncomfortable experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. Sandra’s work with my daughter has helped her become a more secure, confident and happy individual.”
