parenting advice

Top 10 questions Parents should ask about their relationships with their teenager

  1. Does my teen know that I really love her/him?
  2. Am I in control of my own emotions?
  3. Am I aware of my language?“
  4. Do I tell and yell or ask and allow?
  5. Have my partner and I set consistent boundaries?  And is our teen aware of them?
  6. Do I take control of the atmosphere in my home?
  7. Have I taught my kids the value of money?
  8. Do you say, when I was your age?
  9. Is your child your best friend?
  10. Do I trust my teen? Does he/she know this?

We cannot change our kids, we can only change our response to their behaviour.”
