Top 10 Tips for Dads of Teens

Dealing with teenagers is not easy. Here are top 10 tips for dads for dealing with their teenagers in a positive way.

Raising a teenager child can become difficult at times but enjoying this and doing it artistically can help dads and children too. Nowadays both parents are concerned and are ready to do whatever they can for their children. When the children complete 12 years of age, then dads should hold them more tightly and closely with love towards them. This article consists of different tips for dads of teens.

Share Old Memories Together

One fine day when you as well as your child is free sit together and see your old album when your child was small. Share your experiences about how you handle or cared them when they were small and tell them though now they can perform their most of the activities independently still you care for them with the same intensity you cared them when they were small.

Play Sports

Play sports with them of their interest but again sports is favourite among boys mostly and if you have a daughter involve yourself with her in the activity of her interest. At times surprise them by gifting them any sports accessories of their interest.

Provide Freedom to Them

Do not be always behind them as this can irritate them. Allow them some amount of freedom and at the same time keep a little check on them without letting them know that you are keeping eye on them at times. This does not mean you do not trust them but as this is an age when your child can get easily laid off.

Be Friendly with Their Friends

It is very important to establish your relationship as a friend too with your teenage child. Therefore, you also have a responsibility to have a little bit of friendly relation with their friends too. At times you can even call them on dinners or brunch. This can give you an idea of type of company your child has.

Involve in Serious Discussion

Do not hesitate to talk with your teenage children on some serious issues, as this may alert them and they can even get a chance to analyze a risk in front of them.

Help Them Realise their Mistake Calmly

If at times they have hurt someone or have misbehaved, do not talk rudely or scream on them just calmly make them understand that they have done something wrong and that should have not be done. Feeling guilty is an healthy emotion so do not ever feel bad about it, this is also an important exercise for them and if they are feeling guilty then you should be happy that at least your child has realised the mistake and this is a first step towards improvement.

Give Solutions to Every Problem

Before your teenage child gets into some difficulty a dad should try to foresee it and should provide with solution at an earlier stage. For example; tell them subtly about the harmful effects of smoking, drinking and taking drugs so that they think twice before following the wrong path.

At Times Let Them Control

When spending time together with family at times let them decide everything for everyone till it is within the limits. Just go with the flow there are possibilities that you might learn something new from them.

Battles Over Small Things Can Be Avoided

Do not always start with the battle on small and big issues. Choose wisely where you should battle, for example; battling over stopping the child from getting the tattoo done. But small things like waking up late and all are the issues you can handle without battle.

Do Not Interrogate

Interrogation shows your teenager child that you do not believe them instead of interrogation you can show them that you are interested in knowing what their plans are.

Raising teenagers is like walking the fine line. Teenage is a very sensitive phase of a child’s life. Therefore, parents must be careful about how they deal with their teenagers. Parents of teenagers must keep in mind that all that they need is a lot of love, attention and understanding from parents.
