Necessary information for parents of teenagers

How to communicate with teens

Of course, it is very difficult to communicate with teenagers. But to refuse and just try to communicate less, fearing audacity and distrust, is much worse. Conversations are one of the ways when the process of education and upbringing can proceed effectively.

First, be aware, do not talk with your child about his appearance: that he or she dyed his hair many times, torn jeans and other such things that teenagers take very seriously. This is their style, a means to show themselves, and this does not change. Speak to other, more important and interesting topics.

To start a conversation, you can cheat. Start a conversation by chance, for example, when you eat in the car, eat, clean the house. So you will avoid the usual alertness. To preserve the confidence of the child, do not scold him during a conversation. Construct a conversation according to the following pattern: “how would you lose your heart in this situation ...?” To set the child free, give an example from your own experience.

Be persistent in those situations that you consider very serious, which affect such a topic as the health and safety of the child. Do not try to prove something to a teenager if you know that he is already angry or tired. Give him time to go bad. Do not yell at the child if it annoys you. The child will respect you only if he sees that you respect him.

What else do parents need to know?

It matters the size of the applied forces that parents spend on education. The moments when the child is the one and only meaning of life, or vice versa, when he is paid attention only in the most urgent cases, I will make an independent person out of the child who can make his decisions.

Parents who are responsible for the education of adolescents, it is important to be prudent and able to foresee all possible options for the development of the situation.

Parents should know the characteristics of adolescence, as well as what their child needs.

The process of education should be tailored to the personal qualities of a teenager. Parents will have to adapt to the ever-changing nature of their child.

From the first time it seems that all the distinctive features of adolescence contribute to the separation of the child from the family, but this is not so. Adolescents have a great need for their closest relatives to be in constant contact with them. So important is the attitude of parents. If harmony and love reigns in the family, then your child will be much calmer in the family environment.
