Five Things You Can Do To Help Parent Your Teenage Son!
Wondering how to deal with your teenage son? 🤣
Raising boys isn’t always easy. It requires patience, empathy, and compassion. Not to mention, teenage boy behavior can be particularly challenging!
𝘏𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘧𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘰 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘵𝘦𝘦𝘯𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘴𝘰𝘯!👇
1️⃣. 𝐒𝐞𝐭 𝐥𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐬. Parents and teen boys can set boundaries/rules that both agree on. The rules are based on shared values about staying safe and keeping harmony in the family.
2️⃣. 𝗪𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐢𝐭 𝐝𝐨𝐰𝐧. Furthermore, families might consider drafting a written agreement. Therefore, the guidelines and boundaries are clear to everyone.
3️⃣. 𝐀𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬. Parents and sons agree on age-appropriate consequences that will go into effect if the rules are broken. For example, a consequence might be loss of car privileges or an earlier curfew.
4️⃣. 𝐈𝐧𝐯𝐨𝐤𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧. The teens help make a situation better after violating the shared contract. 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.
5️⃣. 𝐀𝐯𝐨𝐢𝐝 𝐬𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭. This is never the best approach for dealing with your teenagers, boy or girl. In fact, punishment can make things worse. Teenage boys may feel rejected and resentful. Hence, they may withdraw further from their parents.
Parents, how do you like to handle your boys? 🤔
