#253 Is This Anxiety or an Excuse? Interview with Cynthia Coufal
An anxious teen is challenging to parent especially if they refuse to do something they should do, like go to school, go to soccer practice, or do their homework. It’s easy to get into arguments with an anxious teen. Conversations frequently spin out of control.
To talk about these challenges I have invited Cynthia Coufal to join us today
