Today’s Interview: Parenting from Your Teen’s Perspective
What advice would your teen give you about your parenting method?
This is a thought provoking question that many parents long to hear.
Fortunately, this week, we have the opportunity to provide you with some unique answers to that question.
In today’s podcast we gain the perspective from a couple of young men that have successfully navigated the challenges teenagers face on a daily basis. More importantly, this interview gives parents the unique opportunity to understand the teenage perspective when it comes to how they view their parent’s style of parenting.
Some of the topics covered in today’s podcast include:
Today’s Interview: Parenting from your Teen’s Perspective
- By having a long term strategy in developing a relationship with your teen, you will gain success by having open communication with him/her.
- Social Media. Once you create a Facebook account, your teen may create a different account, or jump ship to another social media venue so you wont “keep tabs” on him.
- What is wrong with being the “cool” parent? You may find out – there is a lot at stake once your child prepares for college.
- Why you need to help your child with the cultural notion that he, or she, is entitled to anything just for “showing up.”
