Nowadays the children step into adolescence a little bit earlier than several decades ago. It is very important to understand the process of communication and the peculiarities of teenager’s mind. If the parents of a teenager make mistakes while talking to their child that may lead to various problems in the future. While you child still stands in the childhood with one foot and considers you to be his best friend try to learn how to communicate with him. My daughter is 10 years old. She is pushing her period of adolescence that’s why I decided to ask her boldly how does she want me to act. Her answer was simple. Cunningly smiling she asked me to buy whet she wanted and to do what she wanted. But when she tried to answer seriously she told that some parents of her friends pile them up with the unnecessary information and demand too much from them.
The matter is that girls’ nervous system undergoes a great distress due to the hormonal changes during adolescence. As a result the female teenagers experience frequent mood alternations. Everything may seem perfect to your daughter but in a minute she may burst our in tears. The girls who didn’t pay much attention to their appearance get too concerned about their look. They may diet secretly damaging their health. Though they seem detached and indifferent the adolescents are extremely sensitive and don’t take the things easy.
The main rule to follow when communicating with a teenager is not to practice upon your authority. Be aware that your child is an individual and his views may differ from yours whether you like it or not. We are able to accept the position of our relatives or colleagues, so why don’t we put up with the opinion of our children? Allow your child to get both positive and negative experience if it wouldn’t damage his health. Along with that don’t gratify all their fancies.
Young teenagers are to have their duties. They may be cleaning up their room and doing their best at school. Studying is a hard work so don’t overload teenagers with excessive duties. But make sure that your children study diligently.
Don’t swear off the offered help. Go shopping and cook meals together with your children. The collaborative activity sometimes provides more emotional communication than a mere talk. Make the teenagers feel themselves needed. That will prevent the feeling of overwhelming loneliness that adolescents are likely to experience.
