  • Can rebellion be a good thing?

    Can rebellion be a good thing?

    BY LINDA FRIEDLAND FOR MOUTHS OF MUMS APRIL 8TH / 0 COMMENTS

      As parents we often make the mistake of confusing our teenager’s non-conformity or unusual behaviours as rebellion. “What the heck is that disgusting thing doing in your eyebrow!  Get it out before your dad comes home!” “Oh, Come on mum! It’s just a ring!” “Are you crazy?  You look ridiculous. What next? Piercings all over your body!  You are going off the rails!” Expressions of identity such as weird haircuts, strange clothing and body piercings are typical of adolescence.

    Entitlement & the creation of the ME monster

    Screenagers! How to get your teen to disconnect online and reconnect to life

    BY DR LINDA FRIEDLAND MARCH 5TH / 0 COMMENTS

    Extracted from Bubhub.com.au “No Facebook now, finish your homework … ! ” I realise how stupid this comment is, before I even finish the sentence. “But mum, I am getting some help with geometry from Ethan on Facebook messenger.” The reality is that our teens are constantly hooked up to an electronic universe often via multiple devices. Texting, Instagram, Whatsapp and Facebook messaging go on incessantly in their lives.
