The Trials and Tribulations of being a Teenager

Extracts from this document...


The Trials and Tribulations of Being a Teenager The word 'teenager' means different things to parents of children and children generally who enter this age group. To some parents it can mean the time when a child matures and becomes more responsible. Some parents think this is a time of a child's life when they become less responsible than they should be.

Some space and some liberty should always be given to teenagers to allow them to develop. Parents should share things with their children if they think that it is causing a problem so that it can be improved upon and help the family to be happy. ?? ?? ?? ??
