This week we encourage you to take a step back and allow your young person to problem solve on their own.

It’s important for us to slow down and allow our young people some space to work things out for themselves. We know how hard this can be sometimes, because as parents we want to be there for them and make sure they make the right choices.

If you find that your young person is struggling to problem solve, it’s ok to guide them through the process and use words such as “I’m wondering if…” or “Hmmm, what would you think if we…” and see what they come up with in their own.  You may be surprised.

Please remember if your young person’s safety is at risk, we can problem solve and take the lead.
