Episode 68 – “My teens won’t hang out with me” with parenting teens coach, Allie Irwin.

Does it seem like your teens don’t want to have any fun?

Do you feel rejected because they won’t play with you?

Listen as life coach and host of the Parenting Successful Teens podcast, Allie Irwin, coaches Torie on surviving lockdown with two teenagers who won’t play with her. Allie Irwin is a life coach for teens and their parents, helping you give your teenagers the skills they’ll need to be successful in life – how to get along with people, take responsibility, work hard, ask for help, and more. Allie pulls from rigorous training in body language, personality science, lie detection, and life coaching to offer parenting strategies for keeping teens on track. With humor and hard science, she helps make the teen years a good time for all. Torie says: I thought I would take advantage of having Allie on the podcast to coach me on feeling rejected by my teenagers. Being a natural extrovert, this “stay at home” order has been hard for me. I was already working from home and love what I do, but when I want to have some fun on the weekends, my family members are the most convenient companions. I get jealous when I see other families going biking or hiking together. I’ve always  liked playing games with my kids or watching shows, but they wont do anything fun with me. They would rather stay in their rooms, talking to their friends over the internet. Logically I get it. I know it’s developmentally normal and healthy for teens to want to hang out with their friends instead of their mom, but I don’t like feeling rejected on a daily basis. What happened during this coaching call really surprised me.
