Parenting Teens:For parents
2007-10-22
Name: Manasi Teenagers are the same everywhere but I think this article is especially true for Indian parents. We tend to mollycoddle our children even after they are adults. Teenagers need their personal space. They especially do not want to be called embarrassing nicknames like Gogo, Baby, etc.

This is typical Indian behaviour. You give your child an embarrassing nickname and expect him to still answer to it when he grows older. Parents often forget that they are in a public setting and behave as if they are still at home. No wonder teenagers are so wary of going out with their parents.

RE:Teen Aggression
I agree. Children in their teens are indeed stubborn and disrespect their parents. However, I feel that the best way to deal with this is to equip them with the understanding of what is right and what is wrong and leave them to decide what to do. Usually if you trust them, they will do the right thing. But if you try to force them, they will revolt and do the wrong thing.... - Ana [View Message]
