Guiding Your Adolescent Child through Teen Issues
Adolescence is supposed to be the happiest days in your child’s life, but you already are aware that it probably won’t be smooth sailing to adulthood. There are biological changes and a stressful environments/society that may result in pressure to follow norms and to fit in with peers. You would not want to deprive your child the opportunity to enjoy the teen years. Yet, there is that gnawing fear that maybe your teen’s enjoyment and opportunities may be ruined if you choose not to meddle. How can you best guide your teenager through these issues without creating alienation between the two of you?
Teen Issues of the Times
The world is fast evolving. Teen issues such as young marriage, teen pregnancy and substance abuse are still concerns, but there are emerging new teen issues that are as alarming these days. Some of these are online gaming and addiction, excessive Internet use and abuse, bullying and cyberbullying, and violent culture and self-harm.
While you might want to protect your child from these, it is not as easy as you think because there are too many factors that are beyond your control. These issues are caused by a host of familial, social, communal, cultural, economic, and individual factors. For instance, you may feel guilty if you pull away your child from hanging out online when it is their way of communicating with their peers and the world?
With all these issues surrounding your child, it would be a miracle if he/she will not have some tough times while on the roller coaster ride of adolescence. If it makes you feel good, know that many teens did and many more are having fun while successfully eluding the dangers. So can your child.
You have the right to fear these pervasive teen issues, but your teen has to go through this stage; it is part of growing up. You have the choice of letting your teenager go through the process alone. You can, of course, subtly help your child acquire skills to better manage their concerns. If you have a professional therapist for an ally, you are better able to help your teenager.
Guiding Your Teenager Through
No matter how you wish your son/daughter to be an epitome of a perfectly adjusted teen who will never stay out too late, never be defiant or be over experimental to the point of risking his/her life and future, you are already aware that your teen is far from being perfect. It is important to be the best parent you can be for your child (knowing you are far from being perfect also.) You can be a caring, understanding, supportive and smart parent with Carolina Counseling Services.
How much freedom does your adolescent child need to enjoy being a teenager without going beyond the border of what is safe?
