I applaud both of you ladies,
Raising up teenagers is hard work. One thing I learned as my husband and I raised up our 3 kids is no matter how much they fight and resist, they are testing you. They are looking for boundaries, trying to find structure. They will fight you every step of the way. There will be yelling and screaming. Talk to your friends and well respected people in your church. Seek wisdom from those who have raised their kids. Seek wisdom from your pastor. Sit down with your family, ask them to listen, tell them you just want someone to hear.
Take time to hear out hear out your teen.Let them know you are going to think about.. Come back in a calm manner. If he, she does not like that answer, refuses to respect it, then have a discipline already in mind. A responsibility of some sort. Maybe they do not drive yet. But a friend might need a babysitter. They will have to watch the little kids for an hour or... Maybe they might like kids, so garbage duty or laundry for a week or two... It has to be a responsibility. If it gets worse, then bring in elders, pastor or wise people from the church to council you and your teen. Try your best NOT to get into a screaming match with them. Head to the bathroom to take five for yourself and get reconnected. Then go back out and try again. Remember this all takes time. PRAY,PRAY and PRAY some more. Keep in the WORD of GOD. You both will do well, remember growing up is hard work.
Hi Bethany Yes I can give more detail. What I am trying to say is the one having the seizure is as or more frustrated then the parent . I am now a mother myself with six children and my relationship is now good with my mother. God has healed my epilepsy my story is on my page feel free to read it. This may answer your questions. The one with the seizure comes back confused , afraid, feeling guilty yet they suppose to act like nothing happened .So what I am saying the one with seizure don't want to make the parent frustrated they love them dearly but they have so many frustration of there own that they make the parent frustrated. Remember you at 15 without seizures then think what it would be like to be 15 with seizure.
Can you give a little more detail? This can be hard for both you and her.
What kind of struggles are you talking about? There are many struggles that we go through, that others do not understand.
Hi this is Meredith and others go through this my mother had me and my sister with seizures and we were only 15 months apart in age. We had our major struggles that are parents didn't seem to understand .
"ugh...I'm really frustrated with my 15 yr old. she has epilepsy and psych issues. wandering if anyone else is going through this too????"

Hi everyone, I wondered if there are any of you that put your child on the ketogenic diet and what kind of results you have seen? My son was diagnosed with epilepsy almost 2 years ago and has been on several different medications, with the doses increased and they continue to not be effective. He has had about 4 grand mal seizures, the last one just about a month ago. His medication was increased and things were quiet for a while, now we're back to more seizures. Does anyone else experience this? (Sorry for so many questions!) Thank you so much, Cathy
