The demands of parenting can cause burnout just like a high stress job can explained Neil D. Brown, therapist and author of “Ending the Parent-Teen Control Battle.” Brown elaborated by listing the three major causes of parent burnout as being: 1) the existence of control battles between a parent and their teen, 2) the parent not having an adequate support network, and 3) the parent not taking personal time for themselves. Listen to Brown describe ways to help combat each of these problems. [Our thanks to Rich Simpson, owner of Pathways Abroad for providing our intro music]
