Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
1 Shevat 5771 – January 5, 2011

One of the most important skills good listeners have is the ability to put themselves in the shoes of others or to empathize with the speaker by attempting to understand his or her thoughts and feelings. As a parent, try to mirror your teenagers’ feelings by repeating them.

15 Tevet 5771 – December 22, 2010

Is Internet addiction the main cause of today’s at-risk crisis? It’s a topic most people shy away from, but it’s one that needs to be addressed. Everyday more and more teens are getting hooked on the Internet and the effect of surfing may be taking its toll on our youth.

Online infidelity may be the next upcoming challenge facing the Orthodox world. In the last 12 months, I have seen 11 Orthodox couples where one spouse has reported an online affair that has caused serious distress in their marriage. I now believe that an epidemic of online infidelity may be causing the breakup of countless Jewish marriages.

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch

Over the past few months we have discussed many of the major ways in which we can understand what makes a teenager tick. Now let’s put all the pieces together and work towards restarting the relationship between you and your teenager.

Parents At Risk, Teens At Risk

Communicating With A Teenager

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
8 Elul 5770 – August 18, 2010

For both parents and teenagers alike, adolescence can be a very hard time. Unfortunately, when family life gets rough, communication tends to break down. And when it does, parents need to restore their ability to relate to their teenagers by learning about the rules of communication.

Mentoring

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
27 Sivan 5770 – June 9, 2010

When the parent-teen relationship is strained or just needs improvement parents can utilize outside help to bring about a change. When necessary, one of the most effective ways of wielding indirect control is by having the teenager meet with a mentor. As a third person, uninvolved in family conflicts, a mentor is able to interact with a teenager and provide an informal means of solving problems at school, help the teen do homework or simply be a friend.

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
20 Adar 5770 – March 5, 2010

Controlling Your Teenager

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
6 Adar 5770 – February 19, 2010

As children move from infancy into middle and later childhood, they have a growing need for control over their environment. To meet this need, teenagers must be given reasonable power to make choices about what they eat, whom they play with, and what extracurricular activities they participate in.

Self Esteem, Individuality and Love for Teenagers

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
22 Shevat 5770 – February 5, 2010

We often use the expressions “good self-esteem” or “poor self-esteem” to describe people’s evaluation of their own worth. When people have good self-esteem, they tend to view life from a positive perspective, seeing their potential value. Poor or low self-esteem causes people to feel that everything they do in life is a losing battle and that they always get the short end of the stick.

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
6 Shevat 5770 – January 20, 2010

Relating to their teenager can be easier than most parents think, especially when they learn about the key areas that can sustain the relationship: connection, control, and communication.

Investing In Your Relationship

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
9 Tevet 5770 – December 25, 2009

As many parents discover, building a good relationship with a teenager is not easy. Often teenagers are reluctant to be close to their parents, and at times they look to distance themselves as much as possible.

26 Kislev 5770 – December 12, 2009

The Magic Pill

Rabbi Daniel Schonbuch
11 Kislev 5770 – November 27, 2009

Life is full of stories about teenagers having difficulty making it through adolescence. However, parenting teens – even teens who are at risk – doesn’t have to be such a daunting task when parents are willing to focus more on the relationship and less on getting immediate results. Building the relationship is the key to reaching teens who are at risk.
