Teacher Saves World E36: Why Are Teenage Boys So Challenging?

Teacher Saves World E36: Why Are Teenage Boys So Challenging?


Laurie & Matt reach out to the TSW Community and find that they’re not alone on the roller coaster ride called, “Why Are Teenage Boys So Challenging?” Apparently, it’s not a ride anyone gets in line for, but somehow most parents find themselves on at some point during the amusement park of life. Except, of course, for those few friends that have perfect children and love to let you know while you’re suspended upside down about to lose your lunch. Maybe a little splatter will get on their new white shoes.

Part therapy session, part search for answers, Laurie & Matt share the struggles they’ve experienced along with some of those from their listeners. We learn from those that successfully made it through the ride that there is an end, and that equilibrium is recaptured. In fact, there’s a ride you’ll jointly, and voluntarily go on later called, “Let’s Look Back and Laugh!” The line is long, but you don’t care because everyone is happy to be there.

We started Teacher Saves World! to unite teachers and parents in saving the world, one teenager at a time. We're high school teachers and parents of two teens ourselves, so while we love the little ones, that turbulent time between childhood and adulthood is our wheelhouse. We also think high school is four of the most important years in a person's life, and each teen needs an army of caring adults that are dedicated to making sure they're ready to thrive in adulthood. We're taking an Avengers approach: We need everybody to pitch in! We're all superheroes when we care about helping teenagers grow up into confident and capable adults.
