Consistency is key! You probably know that already because your teenager was once a toddler. But I think it is still so important. They need to know what to expect from you. They want to know what to expect from you! With all of the other “stuff” going in their lives, I don’t feel like they need the added concern of, “How is mom going to react today?” or “What in the world?!? Yesterday she said _______, but today she totally changed her mind!?!??!” Be consistent with your kids!
(I know, short and sweet today!)
