1. Put an end to physical violence, verbal abuse and threats.
Sadly I have been on the receiving end of physical violence from my child in the past. As the world is changing, we are starting to see that there needs to be a more understanding view of teenage behaviour. They have an immense amount of pressure and more expectations than any other generation before them. Its usually caused by levels of anxiety but can manifest in anti-social behaviour.
We need to start providing teenagers with the resources they need to deal with the pressures they face, and help them understand the consequences of their actions.
Domestic abuse is a major issue in the world today, and it takes an enormous toll on the victim. For those who are abused, carrying out everyday tasks can be extremely difficult. As a parent of a teenager with severe mental health issues it has been a challenge.
It is clear that this issue needs to be dealt with as soon as possible before it gets any worse. Victims of abuse need support and understanding, rather than resentment and blame. I as a parent have been blamed for my parenting of my aggressive child.
2. Talk about sex and pregnancy prevention
Most teenagers don’t talk about sex with their parents. This is because they don’t want to risk hearing disapproval of their decisions. Most parents feel as if they already know everything there is to know about sex, so it’s not worth discussing the topic.
Unfortunately, most of the decisions that teenagers make about sex end up with them getting pregnant or getting an STD. If they would talk openly and honestly with their parents, more of these problems could be avoided and lives could be changed for the better.
3. Encourage mental wellbeing for a stronger emotional state
Encourage ways in which your teen can develop more confidence, self-esteem and avoid sadness. Also talk about how a healthy lifestyle impacts mental health and happiness.
The human brain is the most powerful tool that we have. If we do not take care of our brain, it will affect all aspects of our lives. Healthy Food with good quality exercise and plenty of sleep is essential.
Developing self esteem is a lifelong process. It is important for children to know that they are loved and accepted by others. This has a profound effect on their well being, mental health and happiness.
Help your teen develop more confidence, self-esteem and avoid sadness. Its important to talk about how a healthy lifestyle impacts mental health and happiness.
4. Help your teenager develop better coping strategies and problem-solving skills
Parents can help their teenager develop better coping strategies and problem-solving skills by providing emotional support, praising their accomplishments and finding a solution to the challenges that they are facing.
Parents should not offer to solve all of their kids’ problems. They should also be careful not to offer too much praise for every success in case the child doesn’t learn how to deal with failure. They should also make sure that they are being supportive and optimistic. Communication is essential as you will find here.
Having friends is important for teens. They teach them about social skills, how to share, and how to cooperate with people. Friendships also help teens develop better coping strategies and problem-solving skills.
The relationships a teenager has with their parents, siblings, and relatives are important too. This is the foundation of where they learn about trust, empathy, and fairness. It’s also where a teen learns that they can rely on other people for help when they need it – or that they can’t always rely on other people for help when they need it.
Teenagers also benefit from healthy friendships because friends teach them new things about themselves as well as share in their experiences. This helps children develop better coping strategies and problem-solving skills than if they had no friends or just had family members
5. Create a family plan for better communication, understanding and cooperation
While family plans can be helpful in a lot of ways, they are most helpful in communicating better with each other. They are also a great means of understanding and cooperating with each other.
Having open conversations about what each member wants to do with their life can be a healthy way for the family to grow closer together. It isn’t always easy, but it can make for a more happy family in the future. Look for back to school for more parenting tips
