Happy Families – Part one
Bringing up a family can be a frightening business, and teenagers (I think) is the hardest part of raising a family.
Questions, questions and more questions, never a day goes by without some thought has to be put into problems created by most teens
Why aren’t they home?
Who are they with?
Why haven’t they called, so many why’s.
A teenager world is a dynamic, unpredictable place. The world around them is forever changing, so many rules, so growing up for teenagers and with their mood swings is a real challenge for them and the parents.
That’s why stringent parenting “techniques” just don’t always bring about the results we would like.
Every teenager keeps secrets, and if you’re like most parents, you worry about what your kids are not telling you–especially when they prefer text messages and social networking sites to face-to-face conversation.
I brought up five children, and really times haven’t changed since the 1970-80’s, just that a whole lot more is happening in the world now, even us adults have a job keeping up with it, no wonder teenagers are not coping very well.
The good news is that they are not teenagers forever and they do grow up to be a credit to your family.
