Our biggest struggle in parenting is understanding and communicating with one another, shares Karie Millar Wirig. Katie is an actress-turned-therapist who is offering some serious insight into how to connect emotionally with our teenagers. “We’re saying, ‘I love you,’ but there’s a communication barrier,” she explains, referring to the different love languages that our children may or may not respond to. She breaks down the five love languages: words of affirmation, service, gifts, physical touch, and quality time. Katie is the author of Becoming a Mean, Teen Parenting Machine: A step-by-step guide to transform your relationship with your teenager. “When they have a strong relationship with God, it will change their behavior more than any reward or punishment will ever do!” Katie reveals.
