ADOLESCENTS As parents we need to understand that adolescents are at a very vulnerable stage of their lives and their relationship with their parents is essential However as adolescence progresses teenagers feel like they no longer need to depend on their parents And a lot of parents are not prepared for the development their teenagers go through so they feel overwhelmed by the new person they are faced with Therefore the connection between parents and teenagers becomes frail We all know from past experiences or from families and friends that parenting a teenager is not a task in which one would call easy In any society teens have a natural need to establish their identity For parents this usually means dealing with some conflict in the home as adolescents are exercising their personal autonomy However separating from parents and establishing own individuality is a normal and necessary step in life and personal development for all teenagers Teenagers also go through a phase in life when they question themselves At this stage of adolescence teenagers often look for the answers by challenging authority and teenage rules Therefore teenagers need parents who can stand firm in the face of their incoherent and unpredictable behaviour I believe if parents stay interested and keep up with their teens activities and friends but not to pry into their lives they can have a powerful positive impact on their relationship Teenagers need the security of knowing what is acceptable and unacceptable to their parents It is also important to show affection even in difficult situations Teenagers need to know that they are loved by their parents unconditionally and they will stand by them no matter what I would like to leave you with a final statement that I established through my years of counselling The most influential socialising agent in the lives of children is their family It is through parents that children learn about themselves
