Relationships are a very fragile matter. We experience many relationships in the course of this life including sibling relationships, relationship with your grandparents your friends etc. But the most important and delicate relationship is the relationship with our parents.
The most crucial period of parenting is to bring up a teenager. Handling a teenager’s aggressiveness and mood swings can be a real nuisance to parents but here are certain guidelines that would help parents build a healthy relationship with teenagers in such a time.
Entering your teenage-hood means excessive use of media including the internet, cell phones etc. Parents shouldn’t abstain from allowing them to use it instead they should keep a tab on how it is being used and if it is being used in the right way then there is nothing to worry about.
What parents mostly forget is that this is the time their children need them the most. Parents should spend quality time with their children and show them that they understand what phase they are going through and discussing teenage issues would help them create trust in parents.
Being friends with your children is the best gift parents can give to their child. Teenage-hood is a period where teenagers face confusion and have a cluster of questions about their being and instead of ignoring your child parents should clear out the confusions they have.
Teenage-hood is a period of great enthusiasm and energy and parents should learn to channel their child’s energy in the right direction for the right outcome. Helping them in choosing something suiting their potential is a great step towards a healthy relationship between teenagers and parents.
All this effort from the parent’s side needs to come with a lot of patience and tolerance to face teenager’s raging hormones and give them the help they need in coping up with their teenage issues.
