As a parent, raising a teenager can be a very difficult time. Teens want their independence but there is still some things parents can do to make their parenting life easier. First, make sure to show your teenagers love even if they don’t seem interested in bonding with you anymore. You also want to make sure you set reasonable expectations for your teens. Set rules and also set consequences because at the end of the day, they need to learn that breaking rules has consequences before they enter the real world as an adult.
- Make sure to show your child love, and continually try to bond with them without being overbearing.
- Set reasonable expectations for your teenagers, as they aren’t perfect and are going to make mistakes that they can learn from.
- Make sure to prioritize rules so that your teen can practice negotiating and compromising which is a part of life when you become an adult.
“On days when you’re having trouble talking to your teen, consider each doing your own thing in the same space.”
