Now that you have some tools for healthy communication with your teens/young adults, it is time to co-create a home environment that anticipates and prepares for crises.One of the biggest mistakes parents make is not paying sufficient attention to kids when everything is chugging along just fine. We all know that sooner or later something will go awry. It is better to be prepared to deal calmly with situations that arise rather than succumb to the ebb and flow of crisis management. Naturally, it is the parents’ job to set some ground rules so that kids know what is expected of them.We would be remiss not to mention the groundbreaking work of Alfred Adler, an Austrian-Jewish medical doctor and a peer of Freud and Jung. He was the first psychiatrist in the modern era to do family therapy. His philosophy has inspired contemporary parenting courses and support groups around the world.
