This month’s Teen Tidbit talks about communication between parents – what to do when your teen asks you not to tell Dad or when you worry about how the other parent will react to what you just caught your teen doing.
The Tidbit also provides parents with some concrete ways to respond to these situations and how to be proactive in your co-parenting relationship so that you know how you want to handle these situations and you and the other co-parent are as much on the same page as possible.
I also refer to the work of Lynne Forrest briefly at the end of this podcast. I first read her article “Three Faces of the Victim” years ago when I worked in Wilderness Therapy. I have been thinking about it lately with families I work with and thought you might find it useful too. You can read about the Victim Triangle on Lynne’s website.
