Teenagers are Risk Takers

Best ads 0

By nature, the teen years are the risk taking years. Teenagers are just trying to figure out who they are, what they want to be, and how to get there. As a result, they often take risks that can be quite dangers. The key is to help them develop self-esteem and a sense of worth.

Drug Use

Best Review 6704

At one time it was difficult to get drugs. Now, it is easier than ever. Drugs are easier to get than alcohol or cigarettes in some places. Pot, ecstasy, cocaine - they are all within reach for your teen. How to prevent it? Talk to your teen about drug use from an early age. Make it clear where you stand and give them the educational tools they need to make a good decision.

Troubled Teens Need Your Attention

Best Review 6704

Let's face it - the teen years suck. Many troubled teens go beyond the teenage blues. They self-medicate, they cut, they even think of suicide. As a parent, we have to pay attention so that we can get them the help that they need right at the beginning.

If you keep up with what is going on in the world you likely already know that the rates of teen pregnancy are just scary and more and more teens are contracting sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS/HIV. Pay attention to your teen to make sure they don't become a statistic.

Just because your next door neighbor had a teenager that ended up in jail because of all the horrible things he did in his youth does not mean your teenager will be like that. And just because your oldest child made it to adulthood without a scrape does not mean the younger one will be like that. You never know what is going to happen because everyone's experience of the teen years will be different. Your best form of defense is to pay attention and be aware of what is going on in your teen's life. Always be available to talk and to listen and to point them in the right direction. Be a PARENT first and a FRIEND second.
