#STRESS: Parenting Teens With Love And Understanding: Connecting With Your Teens In Establishing Safe Boundaries In Our Cyber World Have you ever wanted to pull out your hair over a parenting problem that seemed to require a difficult solution (if there was a solution to be had at all)? Have you ever experienced being torn between wanting to hug or discipline your own child because of something they did or said? As a parent, you might have experienced more than your fair share of bewilderment at how to raise your own children so that they turn out to be decent human beings who will be great contributors to society. And if history does repeat itself, then these feelings are or were probably particularly frequent during your child's adolescent period. With pimples sprouting everywhere, strange odors and excretions being expelled by the body, and a looming sense of confusion and frustration about one's identity, adolescence is a turbulent, sometimes traumatic time for many people. It's especially frustrating and confounding for two sets of people in particular: the adolescents themselves and their parents. And although parents were once teenagers themselves, it can be quite tough for them to remember what it was like to be awkward, moody, and confused all the time. Thus, it's common for a lot of parents and teenagers to butt heads over this lack of mutual understanding (as well as due to the crazy hormonal changes taking place in the teenager's body every minute). What's more, being a parent to a teenager in the 21st century is made all the more challenging by the widespread presence of the Internet in their child's life. For in addition to guiding their adolescent child towards navigating the tricky stage of puberty in order to become a well-adjusted person, 21st century parents also have to contend with the dangers posed by cyberspace such as the presence of pedophile predators, the apparent decline of manners and social graces, as well as plain old peer pressure and bad influences being played out on a much wider space. Thus, this book was written to guide said parents in the process of handling the aforementioned challenges of raising children in the modern age. This book's focus is all about balancing love and logic so that parents can enable their kids to conduct themselves responsibly in cyberspace, and so that they would be able to construct the necessary boundaries therein to protect themselves. Here Is A Preview Of What You Will Learn
- What sort of support your adolescent needs from you at this stage in his or her life, and how this differs from their needs at prior developmental stages.
- How to set up effective communication patterns with your teenager so that he or she will feel more open towards sharing about his or her life with you.
- How to prepare your child for the perils and responsibilities of using social media accounts online.
- What to do in case you run into familiar 21st century parenting dilemmas such as catching your teenager viewing online pornography or sending compromising photos of themselves to strangers.
