Facing the Challenges of Parenting an Adolescent

This blog deals with one of the toughest phases of parenting- adolescence, which brings along lots of challenges for parents as well as children. It throws light on behavioral issues associated with adolescence and the virtues that a parent needs to inculcate in oneself to face these challenges successfully- how a little restraint, understanding, positive attitude and lots of patience can help guide an adolescent through this tough transition, without being intrusive. Adolescent children often become rebellious and withdrawn, and parents need to understand these changes as a normal part of their “growing up”.

Hi Divya, Yes it's a difficult phase. Only friendship can keep your child safe, that to not her age friends but you as her friend, best friend. Your relationship should be such that when your teenager starts liking a boy you should be the first one she would want to share it with. And you should have a big enough heart to listen to her without giving your expert comments. You will have to act wisely to suggest her what is good & bad for her.
