Most parents struggle with the same issues as all other parents. Most parents find it difficult to find the line between nurturing and spoiling their kids. Similarly, there is also the question of proper discipline. What is too harsh? What is too lenient? When you consider all of these types of questions, you begin to realize just how stressful raising a child can be...and not just for the parent, but for the child as well.

Good parents are not parents who necessarily know it all. Good parents are parents who are willing to seek help and information when they need it in order to meet the unique needs of their teens.

Raising teenagers can be difficult at best. While it may seem like an alien life form invaded the body of your formerly sweet and lovable child, your teenager really is not that much different than the child you once knew.  He or she is simply attempting to establish his or her own identity, and that means separating his or her identity from you as parent.  This is a natural and normal process, and you should reassure yourself with the knowledge that it is just a short period of time in the life of your child and it will pass.

Teens are under an enormous amount of pressure.  Parents want them to do well in school and get into a good college and make decisions about their future.  Teenage friends seek to confirm and uphold each others' ideas, thoughts, and identities and encourage each other to be as independent as possible.  They pressure each other to try new and risky things, like drinking, drugs, and sex.  You must learn how to approach your teen and have open conversations that lead to better relationships, more trust, and less chaos in your home.

Even teenagers need and want your love.  Their attitudes can make it difficult to maintain a healthy relationship. It is important to understand that as much as your teenager wants your love, he or she also wants you to respect his or her individuality and independence.  When your teen feels as he/she are being treated like a child because you are being "over" protective, and expect your teen to "believe what you believe", and "think what you think", your teen will rebel.

Are you struggling with a teen that will not listen, lacks motivation, is having trouble getting along at home and at school, is obsessed with technology or might be dealing with an addiction problem?  Don't worry, help is available.  Seek information from experts who have been through it.  

As a good parent you must learn why discipline and choice are important concepts when raising teens. You will learn to discipline your teenager without feeling any guilt. You'll be able to handle your disrespectful and abusive teenager without any more yelling, arguing or hard feelings. You WILL still stay sane as a parent even when you take away all privileges and your teen still tries to defy you. You'll learn to consistently keep to your disrespectful teenager's behavior expectations and mean it. Ultimately, you'll bring back peace in your mind and in your home.

If you are having a difficult time dealing with a disrespectful, angry, or out of control teen, you need to get help at "Raising Your Out Of Control Child". There is also help for babies to teenagers. Check it out here.
