Raising Teenagers


Raising a teenager is much more than just spending quality time with them. Here are tips on raising teenagers.


It is indeed a challenge to raise a teenager with care and safety.
Teenage is a stage when the kid sets a goal for himself and either has a belief or doubt on why and how to pursue them. On the other hand, the parent too has some set goals, and clashes often take place between the parent and the teenager when the goals do not match and are more often than not, are poles apart. Given below are certain tips on how you can guide your teenager so that he makes the right choices in life and at the same time his desires and happinesses are not compromised:


Teach Respect Through Example

For being a role model, you need to set a good example. While it is true, that parents are extremely occupied with their professional work and they cannot afford to provide their kids with the desired amount of attention. But then, it is also important to realise that kids are your responsibility and you will only get back what you provide them with. So focus on spending quality time with your kids.

Ensure that you show respect to them while interacting with them. Say “please” when you ask them to hand over something and “thank you” when they pass you the object. You will notice that they will adopt the habit of maintaining and following etiquette by taking cue from your behaviour.


Communicate Wisely And Properly

A family is built on successful communication. The lines of communication should always be open between you and your teenager. There is no particular set time for effective communication. It can be any time say, while you are doing your daily chores, or the dinner time or when you are on a family trip.

The teenager has a lot to say, share and discuss. Be approachable for the kid, he should feel comfortable in your presence and find it easy in sharing and discussing his thoughts with you. The manner in which you communicate will ensure that the teenager develops his opinion on certain issues. Drive home the vital points through effective communication.


Teenagers Lack Responsibility

This is a common complaint from parents of teenagers. Well, it you are able to teach the value of responsibility, be sure that you will also get it back. Help the teenager understand through family discussions that each member has a certain responsibility in the household. List out a set of jobs for every member of the family. When the teenager completes his given task, you can encourage him by giving him a little treat. He will be happy with your acknowledgement and strive to perform better.


Provide a Positive Environment

No one likes an environment where there is tension, anxiety and depression. Teenagers are naturally curious and rebellious in nature as they are striving to search and set a mark with their identity. When you provide them with a positive environment where family members can freely voice their opinions and live a disciplined life, the teenager will naturally adapt and take to the set rules and regulations of the household with an ease. Even if you feel angry or despaired at a certain occurrence or over a certain person, make sure that you do not give away such negative emotions in the presence of your teenage kid.   

Finally, remember that you can easily handle your teenager with love and affection than with the imposition of strict rules. Your kid is growing up and seeing the world for himself. He is discovering new things and facets of their own characters that are enough to cause upheavals in their set of notions. So, talk, reward and apologise if necessary, you will find dealing with teenager has become a lot easier.
