Question: Allana, My youngest is entering high school next year and we just received military orders to move. He is FREAKING out! How can we get him on the same page? And excited about the move?
Answer: Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! Of course they are freaking out! I totally get it!
While you are certainly not doing this on purpose, from their point of view you are absolutely destroying their WORLD given their whole WORLD is friends and girlfriends/ boyfriends at high school, yes?
Maybe you were different or maybe you just forget, yet can you see that potentially their entire identity is being navigated with friendships at school right now and you’re essentially pulling the rug out from their entire identity? Plus hormones are raging, they are wanting to fit in, they are nonstop on Snapchat doing their streaks… Yes?
Maybe that’s just my 14-year-old… And even though I may counsel him to determine his self-worth from the inside out and I may coach him not allow another’s opinion of him to make him lose his center… the truth is it’s a hard time. He’s come into my room several nights distraught because of the way girls have treated him when he was doing his best to speak his truth.
Thank you for being willing to take 2 steps back so you can take 10 steps forward. What if not only the move, but also your son’s reaction is the gift that your soul requires to take your relationship, marriage, family and future to the next level?
Huge love, Allana xox
