Are you doing enough for your teenager

So, you think you are the busiest parent in the entire cosmos; more organized than the archetypal ant at work; a paragon of efficiency when it comes to being both- a provider and a caretaker at the same time; and yet, utterly clueless about how to deal with a brash and a difficult teenager back home? Time to hit the ‘pause’ button of your life really hard! Put on your thinking cap and rack your brains. If still baffled, ask yourself, “Do I spend enough time with my teen?” Crack goes the puzzle as you get your answer- “Probably not!”

I have always wanted to read this blog, got around to finally doing it today. A lovely post by Ms. Sodhi and definitely helpful for me. I have been through phases of hovering over my preteen to almost feeling detached. A roller coaster ride for sure. Now again back to evaluating what I can do better. Thanks. Very well written post.

Totally agree with this article..... Also feel that its the best opportunity for us parents to see and realise that we were no different as teenagers. As I try my best to do things the way I'd have expected my parents to do without being influenced by the extended family.

Preteens has so far been the most exciting time for me as a parent. Every day is a new day and presents a new challenge, never faced before. Fitness sessions seems like a great idea to catch up with my 11 year old. great post, thanks!
