Parenting teens these days is no longer the same as our parents’ days.
As much as parents want the best for their teens, they often find it a challenge how they could help their teens to be the ‘BEST’ that they could be. Unfortunately, this often gives rise to many misunderstandings and unhappiness between parents and teens.
This talk seeks to help parents to understand teens’ stage of development; examine parents’ expectations; influencing factors and belief system.
When parents are able to understand and come to term with these, parents will be more realistic and confident in building relationships with their teens in the teenage years.
