One of the biggest frustrations I hear from parents is, “my teen doesn’t respect my boundaries”, or “I tried setting boundaries, but it didn’t work”.
That frustration leads to the next one – “I tried setting consequences, but my teen keeps (fill in the blank)”, “my teen doesn’t care about consequences so now what do I do?”, and lastly, “What consequences do I set for (fill in the blank)?”
It’s not you.
Unfortunately, you’re likely using what you learned were boundaries and consequences but really, those are expectations, commands and controls which create more defiance, disrespect, and disconnection.

Sounds too good to be true?
