Question: Are you sure you really have all the right answers?
Does Home & Away and Neighbours accurately reflect life in the real world?
High phone bills
Lack of Appreciation
Dropping out of School
Best Friend Model
The Let me fix it model
Are you raising a child or an adult?
An adult, so teach responsibility!
Pose questions rather than answers
So How Do We Resolve The Challenging Behaviour?
1. Lecture rather than discuss
2. Ignore the obvious
3. Not following through on rules and consequences
4. Setting unreasonable goals
5. Pointing out only the negative, expecting only the positive
6. Leaving the education ‘up to someone else’
7. Giving up on family time – too much hassle
8. Don’t burdening your teen with your problems. Allow your adolescent to remain a teenager.
9. Not taking the time to know what’s up with adolescents today
10. Fathers believing that parenting is woman’s work.. “Call me when there is a real problem”
