#107 Strategies for Silencing Your Teen’s Inner Critic with Natalie Borrell

In this episode, Lisa and Natalie discuss:

  • Why everyone should face their inner critic. 
  • Ways in which the inner critic shows up in teens and young adults. 
  • Building the muscle of resiliency.
  • Strategy tools for silencing your teen’s inner critic. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Having an inner critic is normal, but it does need to be addressed so the negative thoughts do not become your teen’s beliefs and actions. 
  • It is important to tackle the mindset before tackling the inner critic. Building up the mindset and resiliency is the foundation. 
  • Remind your teen that courage looks like confidence to an outsider. They should do things scared, and it will become easier in time.
  • Trial and error is the key to your student learning how to silence their inner critic. What works for one person will not necessarily work for someone else.
