Their Crucial Years as Teenagers Are Your Crucial Years as a Parent
Many parents wish their child will go back to being the cute, docile kid they used to be. Big mistake! You want your child to become the adult, responsible individual you raised them to be. Someone you can proudly watch as they graduate from college, marry the partner they love, and have children of their own. Here are some tips on how to get there.
Set the Right Example
- Is my relationship in a good place? This is the time when your teen starts thinking what a loving, respectful, loyal marriage should look like.
- Is mine truly a healthy mind in a healthy body? You can lecture your teen all you want about the importance of doing sports, meditation, and leading a healthy life. But if you don’t practice what you preach they will just think you are a hypocrite, and they will never do these things themselves.
