Communicating with our teenagers can be difficult and you will want to pull out all your hair out of your head. Your teenager will want to communicate with their friends more than their mom, dad or family members. They have trust in their friends and that is where it stops. Communication is the most important thing to accomplish and you will want to give them support and understanding no matter what the circumstance is.
Many teens get stuck in different circumstances and are scared to approach their own parents. It can be over a variety of things such as sex, drugs or even peer pressure. They are scared or think that they are going to get into trouble if they tell you. They feel like they are going to get lectured, grounded or not be able to hang out with their normal friends. In most households these days both of the parents are working. They may feel like you are even too busy to deal with what they have going on in their lives. You want to instill in your child that how busy that you are that you can always sit and make time for them.
Also know matter what is going on in a teens life, it is always the end of the world. You will always want to try and sit down with your child and discuss a solution to take care of the matter. Your teen will see how you respond and your reaction and will gain it for the next time they are in a uncomfortable situation.
