Challenges in life are guaranteed! In this childhood training ground for adulting (otherwise known as being a teenager), helping your child walk through challenges is one of the hardest experiences as a parent.

Because we have to be advocates for ourselves (and one day our families, friends, and more) and the many ways that this is required of us are as diverse as the wildflowers. So, the more practice the better, but there are 6 things that need to be taught and practiced when facing this self-leadership hurdle.
