Five Things You Can Do To Help Parent Your Teenage Son!

Wondering how to deal with your teenage son? ๐Ÿคฃโฃ

Raising boys isnโ€™t always easy. It requires patience, empathy, and compassion. Not to mention, teenage boy behavior can be particularly challenging!โฃ

For example, if they get a speeding ticket, they pay it on their own. Or they take steps to repair a relationship with a sibling after a fight.โฃ
โฃ

In fact, punishment can make things worse. Teenage boys may feel rejected and resentful. Hence, they may withdraw further from their parents.โฃ

Parents, how do you like to handle your boys? ๐Ÿค”โฃ
