5 Mistakes Parents Make With Teens and Tweens

Submitted by on August 6, 2011 – 11:49 am No Comment

Here are the top mistakes parents make with their teens and tweens, and how to avoid them.

Things aren’t the way they used to be. Your 12-year-old no longer comes to you first when she feels hurt or disappointed. When your son misses curfew — again — the time-out corner that used to work wonders is now simply, lame. As your child grows into adolescence, you need to adapt your tried-and-true parenting skills to a rapidly changing world.

As tempting as it might seem, don’t throw away everything you know about your child — or yourself as a parent. Your teenager may seem like a stranger in your home, but behind the slammed doors and mood swings, she is still your child. You will face many unknowns in the years ahead. What you can expect is that your limits will be tested and your patience will, at times, wear thin. Here are the top mistakes parents make with their teens and tweens, and how to avoid them.

My Comments:
I can’t believe that my son is getting older and is now in his tween years.  In a couple of week he will be 12 years old…oh boy! it seemed as if it were yesterday when I first held him in my arms.  That tiny bundle of joy that brought so much love to my heart.  I love him so much.  I only hope that I can be a worthy parent to guide him toward a good path in life.  To be a strong, responsible, caring and truthful man.  I ask for understanding from the Most High…I ask for  guidance.
