Facing Teenage Blues?
Teenage is a very fragile and tender age. Kids at this age get rebellious and insurgent. They indulge into devil-may-care sort of behaviour. They go through a lot of behavioural changes as this is the time when they are trying to shape their own identity. At this stage their brain is vulnerable. They might just get swayed away with questionable people.
Knowing the repercussions of this age parents must keep no stone unturned to steer their child in the appropriate direction. The primary step the parents need to take is to understand what normal behaviour is and what abnormal behaviour is for their kids at that age. Parents need to study their behaviour as they might exhibit emotional and mental changes. Teenagers may try to change the way they look, shed a lot of weight, delve in constant fights or even escalate squabbles or clashes.
Once the parents notice such changes they should immediately visit a consultant, therapist or a psychiatrist. Visiting a therapist or a psychiatrist does not mean that your child is mentally ill, it is just that child is disturbed and the concerned people will help you to know the root cause behind the same.
After discovering the cause the parents should not just rely on the specialists. The parents should take initiatives to eradicate the problem from their child’s mind. Communication at this point of time is the most important thing a child needs. He or she needs to talk their fear or insecurity out. Parents simply need to step into the child’s shoe and realize that each and every brain is wired in a different manner.
All parents need to do is to understand their child’s problem. They need to know that the child’s mind is like water at this age. It can take the shape of any mould you pour it into. Parents need to be aware of the situation the kid is into and still act as an outsider by not pestering them. Parents need to act a catalyst in the situation wherein they help their child by not letting them think that they are a nagging set of people.
