Neil Brown

Neil D. Brown, LCSW, is a family therapist, author and podcast host. He talks with us about how to stop power struggles with your teens, disengage from the power struggle with our tweens/teens, how to raise empowered children, and ending the parent-teen battle.

In this episode, we talked about:

  • Control battles - when the pattern becomes so chronic and self-perpetuating that the relationship (parents pushing and kids resisting) becomes such a predictable event and happens regularly
  • Adolescence - period of time when kids are moving from childhood to adulthood; need to make own decisions and function more independently - how do we make this a gradual experience that is safe and sane
  • How do we get there?
  • When parents and teens get locked in a repetitive pattern, it locks everything up and the kids don't grow and develop the way they should
  • Change the pattern, defeat the pattern (the best) - what behaviors feed it, what starve it, how do we break the pattern?
  • Empowering your children; raising them to feel empowered
  • Should you be best friends with your kid?
  • Anxieties of raising teens
