10 Encouraging Things To Say To Your Stressed-Out Teen
A few months ago, I shared a post about things to say to your kids when they're having a bad day.
Then a couple weeks ago, I got the following text from my college-freshman daughter: "I'm so alone. I'm so stressed out. I think it was a mistake to come here."
Which inspired me to tweak my bad-day list a little and share it over on Grown & Flown. If you have a teen (or a tween-going-on-a-teen) or might have one someday or know someone who does have one right now, maybe this list will give you a few alternatives to the standard "it will be okay."
Because while it probably will be okay, getting from here to there can be a rough road, and sometimes it's nice to have a few extra encouraging words for the journey.
