Worrying About Our Teens' Perfectionistic Standards

Reading now: 742

When sitting amongst a group of parents of teenagers, some of the complaints begin to sound very familiar. “I wish my teen would try harder in school.” “My teen fights every rule I set.” “My teen doesn’t seem to care about anything.” These are all common concerns and often reflect normal developmental trends.

Quiet among those groups of parents are a few with the opposite set of concerns. They often remain quiet because they will be ridiculed as either not really having a problem or attempting to brag about their children.

These are the parents of teens who have self-imposed high standards and rules. Over the years I have worked with many perfectionistic teenagers.
