Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Q. Hi Sue, I have a number of parenting challenges to work through. Teenagers pushing boundaries, refusing to get up and go to school and demanding behaviours, which are exhausting and stretching my resilience. The phone is a big problem, often it's not coming off their phone at a reasonable time at night ( what is reasonable for a 14 yr old?), wanting to go out into town to meet friends ( some who are a little older 15-16 who don't go to school) on a school night and then not sticking to agreements 're home time, which leads to arguments, which usually results in lots of shouting & swearing ( on both sides) Any tips and strategies would be appreciated. Regards Sue
A.

Hello Sue,

Sounds like you’ve got your hands full:)

The teenage years are full of pushing boundaries and testing them. If you see it as about striving for independence and that they are really just tall toddlers it can sometimes help.

It’s about choosing your battles so that you can keep the lines of communication open. Kids need to feel capable and competent & don’t like to be ‘told’ so much in the teenage years but they need rules too.

My article about The Crucial ‘C’s can help pinpoint which of these maybe missing.

Here are a couple of webinars that I hope will help you: 

The Crucial ‘C’s’ -The Blueprint for Raising Happy, Confident, Resilient Children.

Sex, Drugs & Rock & Roll – Navigating the Choppy Waters of the Teenage Years

Hope that helps

Sue
