Getting a shot at the doctor’s office or having blood drawn for a test might hurt … but it’s for your own good!
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.
Most parents believe that pain and discomfort should be avoided at all costs. However, pain is often the perfect remedy for a misbehaving teen.
See, teens will continue making poor choices and bad decisions … until the resulting pain is greater than the pleasure derived from their behavior. And by preventing your child from feeling the pain of their mistakes, you might just be enabling them to continue down that destructive path.
Are you trying to shelter your teen from pain and discomfort? Mom, Dad … let them experience the consequences of their actions. It’s for their own good!
