Exploring hidden emotions in young people

Helene is a mother of 5 and a successful entrepreneur. She called our offices a year ago to complain about her son David and his lack of emotion. She could not understand why the young man smiled and kept quiet whenever she screamed at him, asked him questions and hit him. She felt disrespected, confused and was certain that he was using drugs.
Her uncombed hair, pale face, frequent sighing and irritability during our meeting, were clear indications of distress. Her son, on the other hand, seated right across the room was going through our flier with a smile on his face. As we progressed with the session and barriers were broken, Helene was astonished to see David cry “for the first time in a long time,” she acknowledged. She came to know that the young man was broken and hiding his emotion was his way to showcase his masculinity.

While in certain cases, the ability to control ones emotion is considered a sign of a highly emotional intelligent person, in other cases, this could be an example of confusion, depression and a cry for help. Identifying and managing your teens’ emotions is one of the most important skills you can develop.

As a parent, you can help your teenagers by acknowledging his/her emotions and helping him/her become aware of its triggers. You can also help him/her find appropriate ways to express those emotions. This requires control over your own emotions and choosing to listen and understand, rather than passing judgments.

In our upcoming training Shifting Landscape, we will be exploring the topic of emotions at length.
Shifting Landscape is a self-awareness and self-management training programme for young people between the ages of 14 and 20 years old. The course helps them understand themselves and others better, and guide their thoughts and decision making.

The training will cover 9 critical topics (detailed in the attached flier) to take your teen off to the right altitude.
