Posted: August 14, 2020

Tips parents can use to handle common teenage conundrums.

A teenage kid is always a challenge for parents. Raising them is not so easy. They feel their friends are more close to them than their parents. There has been a clash between the teenagers and their parent’s thoughts. Their goals don’t match so easily. Read the below article which tells you about the keys to raising a teenager.

Your love should be visible

Parents love is all time needed for every kid whether it’s a teenager or children. Don’t hide your love, let it flow visibly and let your child feel the same. It’s possible that they may not welcome you in the same photo frame but they look at you as a firm support of that frame.

Keep yourself open for them

When a teenager tries to say something or try to give an opinion at home parents don’t really consider it and before listening often reject it. Do not do the same, give time to listen to your child so that he/she should feel that his/her voice is not getting pressed in the house.

Their faith should be encouraged

Most of the time young people are judged by their look and performance, at such times you need to encourage them for what they are and how they can improve.

You should know their friends

Though you can’t force teenagers to select their friends but you need to know what kind of kids they are roaming with. Try to organize some snack time and invite their friend’s home to understand them better. This way you will not only come to know about their friends but families too.

Be his friend in nature’s arms

Everyone knows teenagers love adventures. So explore their nature’s love, give them  company and try to get more close to them in outdoor fun.

Put down the boundaries

No children are born with know-how about  good and bad facts of life, so to make them understand you have to put some boundaries on what’s right and what’s wrong. To make him/her a good person these boundaries will only help as he/she will start understanding the good and bad of life.

Stop the lectures

To explain to them what is good and bad is important but don’t repeat it all the time and stop giving them a big  lectures. They will definitely not pay full attention and then you will get frustrated and there will be more conflict.

Your experience counts

It’s possible a lot of times your teen may come to you and ask for your opinion, at such times don’t insult or laugh them but offer your wisdom. And there is a reverse possibly that they won’t come to you or won’t like your decision but you need to understand the importance of experience and use the same whenever needed.

Their focus is important

Though you will try to fulfill all their dreams, you need to make them realize that life isn’t fun all the time and they should not move from their focus of life.

They are still kids

It’s true your child is changing due to age which means there are a lot of hormonal changes happening in your child’s body so you also need to give him/her some time and instead of losing patience to understand them.

Though the child is getting into teenage and as a parent it looks like tough business , you need to keep calm and raise teenagers with positive parenting.
