Laying The Foundation For Parenting Troubled Teens

Hand gestures can aid in disciplining your child when all other methods are failing. This is a non-verbal way of warning your child when he is behaving inappropriately, and it will give him a chance to change his behavior before you carry out a discipline.

You should give your children a set of rules to follow. They should also know there will be consequences to breaking those rules. While your children may not immediately realize it, one day they will realize and appreciate the fact that you took the time to create rules because you care about them. Having a set of rules in place will also make the job of parenting easier for yourself, as well as your partner.

Parents of teens do not want their teen cussing them out and yelling at them. When a teen is behaving this way, a parent should ask themselves why their teen is doing that. Maybe, the parent realizes that they talk that way and that’s where their teen learned it. Or, maybe the rule of “no cussing and yelling at each other” isn’t backed by any value. It’s just a rule that you have to follow “because I said so”. Why doesn’t your family cuss and yell at each other? Some values behind that rule is that it makes you feel degraded and low. It ruins self-confidence in a person to be yelled and cussed at. Yelling and cussing at each other also builds aggression and anger. We don’t like being angry or aggressive at each other. Those are some great values to live in.

However, there are some foods that we simply cannot give her yet. One of those happens to be popcorn because we know there is too much of a chance she will choke on it. So, as an alternative, we will buy her a bag of puff corn instead.

“Talk with girls about relational violence (such as gossip, rumor-spreading and exclusion) as well as physical violence (hitting or fighting). Affirm girls’ relational strengths and sense of fairness, help them identify and hold on to their strong feelings, like anger, and encourage them to practice more direct, positive ways to effect change in their relationships,” says Brown.

If you are having the handover at school – lets say the after-school-care program, they’re used to this sort of tactic and frequently have their own way of dealing with it.

If there is respect and cooperation between the two parents, then home is great. However, probably if it was like that, you wouldn’t be reading this either. So, back to how it is for you.

The reason for not having the so called “rebellious stage” is because our ancestors focused on teaching their children filial piety and respecting the elders from the very early age of their children. When a child knows how to be filial to the parent and respect the elders, there is no way that he can rebel against the parent. How do our ancestors teach filial piety and respect the elders to their children? They did it by role modeling. Our ancestors not only say but actually do it for their children to emulate.
