Parental engagement makes it far more likely that our children will avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as sexual risk and substance use. โฃ

You might be asking, how do I effectively engage with my teens? We got you covered! Here are 3 great ways you can engage as a parent.๐Ÿ‘‡โฃ

1๏ธโƒฃ. ๐˜—๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜”๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ – Teens whose parents know where they are and the people they are with are less likely to get caught up in the wrong crowd or put in unsafe situations. Remember the difference between monitoring vs. controlling, though. โฃ

And those who have had conversations on substance abuse and drugs, are far more likely to stay away from them. โฃ

These topics often times include: sex, alcohol, drugs, and peer pressure. Being connected to your teen helps them feel safe and heard when talking about their feelings and issues. โฃ
โฃ
Being a teen or young adult is possibly one of the most difficult, confusing times in a personโ€™s life. As parents, we need to make sure our children are educated, and feel safe talking to us about these uncomfortable topics. โฃ
