How My Teen Daughter Changed My Relationship

Tune up Tuesday!  In addition to hosting mornings on B105.7, I work in the afternoons as a therapist at Evolve Therapy in Greenwood, IN.  On Tuesday mornings I share nuggets you may be able to use to sort of “tune up” a relationship in your life.  This morning’s tune up comes from a listener…

This is a listener who says her teen daughter said something that created a positive shift in her relationship with her husband.  She said she was a little passive aggressive toward her husband and after he left the room, her teen daughter said – “Mom, you wouldn’t talk to a friend the way you talk to dad.”  Ouch!

She says her daughter was right and that new awareness has shifted the way she interacts with her husband.  So, there’s your tune-up.  If you’re not fortunate enough to have a teenage daughter to give you a quick assessment, use that filter… would you talk to a friend the way you talk to your spouse sometimes?  In many cases if you did, that person wouldn’t stick around and be your friend for long.
