Though we don’t agree with this teen’s approach to getting more privacy, studies show that teens need more privacy and personal space as they get older – and it’s an actual good thing!
Giving your child the privacy to think and explore is an important part of their growing independence. That’s because part of growing up is learning to handle new ideas, emotions, and interests with independence and responsibility. 💭
Because the teenage brain is still developing, teens sometimes make quick decisions and don’t always think through the consequences of their behavior. 👀 Your child needs you to stay in touch with them, so you can guide and support them. 𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘥 𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨.
You should also trust your child to make good decisions, behave appropriately, and decide what information they need or want to share with you and others.
But, 𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘨𝘰𝘦𝘴 𝘣𝘰𝘵𝘩 𝘸𝘢𝘺𝘴. Your child needs to trust that you respect their right to have privacy and a say in decisions about their life! 👏
