Adolescents like to be respected just as much as an adult. The goal is to give them more and more responsiblity so that by eighteen years of age they are ready to be fully responsible. It is very easy to get stuck any where along the way. The answer is not to let your kids run free nor to order them around with an iron fist. They must learn to solve their own problems. It is amazing and a relief to the parent to learn different ways relate to your child. In some ways, the child has more abilities than we give them credit for, so listening is critical to help draw out their understanding and at the same time listening helps them feel understood. This in itself can have a large impact on their behavior an decsions. Join in with a parenting group that can help you develop a win-win strategy with your growing adolescent. This workshop is most effective for ages 12 to 18.
