Delene Cole, M.S., Certified Family Life Educator, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, and Certified Parent Educator, chats with Afsaneh Noori about Taming Parental Anxieties while Parenting Teens on our next show April 18, 2011.

When it comes to families, Delene says “Normal is just a dial on the dryer.  Parental anxieties (internal or externally imposed) turn up the heat and make it more difficult to stay present in our relationships with teenagers, causing parents to use a lot of different strategies to get what we want”. If you’re experiencing the profound loss of your beautiful baby into a confrontational-driven teen, you may be ready to listen to Delene.
