You might as well as laugh…

I have written before about the fact that what parents says is not always what children hear (Baseball and Ballet). We’ve all been there: we say something, our words enter the scrambled brains of our adolescents, and they respond in ways that make it clear that something has been seriously lost in translation. A fellow blogger shared a wonderful post today titled Parent > Teenager Dictionary. It is both helpful and humorous. And on this wacky adventure that is parenting, we might as well laugh, right?

I’ll be back in the next few days with a new post of my own. Please stay tuned…


About Dr. Sayers

I am a child psychologist and mother of two. This blog is about the lessons we, as parents, can learn about parenting from the things that child clients have told me over my 20 years in private practice. I continue to work with children and families at Southampton Psychiatric Associates ( which serves Bucks, eastern Montgomery, and northeast Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania. In addition, I train psychology graduate students and psychiatry residents at Temple University.
