Emotional Burnout


There’s rarely a good time to be faced with a crisis. And for parents with out-of-control teens … the day-to-day struggle can drain every ounce of emotional energy.

Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.

If you’re dealing with a teen who’s caught in the spin cycle, let me give you a few tips for preventing emotional burnout.

First, take a break. Spend some time away from the stress. Something as simple as lunch with a friend can leave you feeling energized and refreshed.

Second, pull out some old photos or home videos … and remember the good ol’ days when things were innocent and fun. Let the memories restore you.

And finally, even though you might feel alone … rest assured, you are not alone. God knows. And He’s not finished with your teen.
