Parents were teenagers once, but they often fail to understand their teenage children. A good way is to remember what they felt and did during their teenage years. Regardless of their seemingly rebellious nature, parents should immediately realize that teenagers still desire one thing: to be loved. Regardless of how hostile a teen may seem, sincere love will easily win their heart. Teenagers want to get the attention of their parents and be loved at every situation possible. Being a teenager is a difficult situation for them, because they realize that they are children anymore. Developmental and hormonal changes have significant effects on how they feel. Parents should also consider the social situations of their children.
Fortunately, we can demonstrate love in many different ways. By simply talking to them regularly, teenagers know that they are getting attention. During these conversation sessions, parents may give various open ended questions to encourage teenagers to talk. When teens talk, parents should show their genuine interest and try to avoid criticisms. There should be schedule family time with the focus of discussion between parents and children. Teenagers often get into troubles, even if it’s not their intention. It is acceptable to feel frustration and anger, but parents need to control themselves. Uncontrolled outbursts won’t resolve anything and may put a distance between parents and children.
Another way to make teenagers to feel loved is by providing safety and improving their well being. They should feel that home is a place of comfort, where they can seek refuge from the frustrating outside world. Many children become the victim of bullying. The situation may become quite challenging, if parents fail to understand. Pressures that children receive at home and school can be quite overwhelming. Parents should have the goal of making their children to feel happy and this can be hard to achieve by many teenagers. If the situation is difficult for teens, parents should become the primary supporter. Everything should be handled in a positive and open manner. Teenagers should be encouraged to feel comfortable about themselves.
Teenagers take parent as role model. So, if to express love to children, parents should also express love to one another. Spouses should clearly show their love with one another. If parents fight often, teenagers will think that love in the family is just faked. Children won’t feel that they are being loved and they will struggle to express love. A house that is based in love could allow children to stay in track. Parents need to give teenagers plenty of valuable lessons to shape their core values and beliefs. As children grow and become adults, they will emulate behaviour patterns. So, if love is not the basis of activity in the house, children won’t grow into loving individuals. Parents need to work towards making their children a more complete and better person. Once children receive sincere love from parents, they will try to make their parents proud. They want to prove to parents that they are worthy of love and they can achieve great things in life.
