Positive parenting tips for 16-years-old

Parenting of teenagers is based on the same trustful and open relationships as with a kid 10-years-old. Raising a teen requires from the parent a big love to his teenager.

Positive parenting of a teen includes patience. Try to be honest with yourself and keep in a good shape memories from your teen period. Do not consider the behaviour of teenagers from your level now but try to remember yourself when you were at the age of sweet 16. The first positive parenting tip for 16-years-old is to.

TRUST to your teen

Otherwise, you risk losing a connection with your teenager. You will be hearing pleasing for you stories but almost all of them will be a lie.

Your teenager will be scared to say you the truth. What are you targeting to have – sweet lie or bold true? If your aim is only to please yourself this article is not for you. 

It is not an easy job to do. As my 16-years-old daughter says: “You need to deserve trust”. This is a true treasure. You can not buy it. To deserve it you should be sincerely interested in their lives, be able to keep secrets. Sometimes being able to keep laughing with them over situations, do not be too serious. 

Be brave enough to look at their eyes reading what is happening inside this young and lovely soul.

Live their emotions

Have enough time and desire to listen to and feel together with their emotions. They are still very fragile. A random word may hurt a lot of the young soul of your teen. 

Many parents call the teenage period very difficult. However, it is your choice whether make it hard or spend one of the best periods in life spiritually together with your teens. 

Live your teen’s dream, follow by your heart her first love. Do not ignore or forbid relationship, direct, support. Feel your teenager. Do not perceive your teenager as a separate strange person, you together hand in hand will go through this beautiful age of discovering the world with its uncertain rules and attitude. 

Be happy and proud of your teen’s achievements

Do not wait until she will become the best in class or be a brilliant example for everybody. It is not important. 

Maybe you aim to make a successful person in life but why not to make firstly happy teenager and success will naturally come in the future. First ski experience, language course, ability to swim under the water – do not take for granted anything, express your pride to your teen.

Spend quality time together – just you and your teen

Parenting of teenagers does not need to mean a very tough job. Opposite it may be a wonderful lunch together or a fantastic trip to the islands. Imagine how close you will be to each other. How many hours and days you will spend together.

You will have a lot of memories – situations, events, stories deserve to laugh and smile at. During this precious time with your teen, you will listen to her stories, learn better friends, may give your advice. 

Drive a life of your teen 

Have a vivid mind and be flexible for a change. It happened to us that we with my daughters made serious and difficult decisions for their lives quickly, sometimes spontaneously and all of them proved to be the right ones. We had big support from the head of our family – our teens’ father. 

Whether it is a change of school, friends, countries – do not be afraid to experiment. Think 360 degrees of the situation, ask the opinion of your teen, make a decision, give all responsibility to your teenager and move on.

After this step – just TRUST that everything will be OK. Do not make any big decisions until you are not calm enough inside your heart. Trust yourself, your teen, live in a flow. More about how to live in a flow you learn here.

The opposite side of trustful relationships is when your teen remains lonely with her feelings, emotions, attitude. This may direct to early habit to drink alcohol, which is harmful to their health.
