@HarryNeate awesome suggestion -a really challenging situation that you've described.It would be really valuable to have a discussion and share ideas and support on this. 

So thank you for this suggestion...  We do have on in the pipeline around Communication with teens - so we could include this for sure.

Hey @gina-Ro, I'm thinking a discussion around finding the right support for teens and families could be useful. 

 

"How did you find the right support services for your teen?" or something like that?

 

 

As a lighter topic I was thinking we could ask "What do you appreciate most about your teen?", or "What is your favourite trait in your teen?"

 

Are there any topics you'd like to see us run @sunflowermom@Moonsie@Olive?

A lighter topic could be around positive affirmations.

 

"What positive affirmations do you use to help you get through the tough times?"

@taokat

Just this past week I started waking up in the morning putting my hand on my heart and saying, "Good Morning.  I love you ! " to myself.  

It feel strange but I like it.

I love that @sunflowermom! I have my little affirmations too, which made me wonder if others do too. So do you think it could be a good topic to run for a Topical Tuesday?

I think it would be a great topic! I know we have all heard of doing affirmations but to keep practicing takes some work.
