Conflicts with Your Teen?

Want less troublesome conflicts with your teen?

Wouldn’t it be nice if your conflicts with your teenager ended amicable and warm by the end of the day? Seems like a far-fetched idea doesn’t it? A study done by Yale suggests it is possible! I am sure you have already had plenty of “run in’s” with your teen that did not end so well.


The study submits that if your child experiences warmth and love from you at some point in the day of the conflict then your conflicts may end up being more peaceable and manageable.


Below is an excerpt from the article:


“Parents often stress about the conflicts they are experiencing with their children,” said Coffey, “but our study suggests conflicts are manageable as long as children experience warmth from their parents at some point during the same day.”

As you spend extra time together due to Covid-19 and have more opportunities to have, let’s say, “strong discussions” I invite you to remember that well known proverb,


15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

My prayers are with all the teens and their families. Here is the link to the article: https://news.yale.edu/2020/07/14/parent-teen-conflicts-less-troublesome-when-teens-feel-loved-study-shows
