Sir Post-A-Lot here once again on an exceedingly warm Wednesday morning here! Hope all of you are doing well and ready to rock the rest of the week before the weekends! Yay!
Today we bring you an article from goodtherapy.org, and they write about how to talk to your teenager about dating. For many teenagers, the idea of dating is one filled with unicorns and rainbows, where nothing bad ever happens. We get that warm fluffy feeling in our bellies and nothing but the best awaits us.
For those of us who are parents on the other hand, the prospect of our teenager dating is one filled with dread. Scam artists, conman out to cheat our loved ones and even worst still. You think to yourself that sometimes, there are some mistakes that you don’t need to make in life, but try telling that to your teenager and you’re in for a long, long argument ahead of you more often than not.
goodtherapy.org brings you a fantastic article that highlights some of the ways that you can use to communicate effectively with our teenagers. At the end of the day, dating is something that is going to happen regardless, but that does not mean that they can’t do so in a safe manner.
It’s worth remembering however that this would not be a magic button that would automatically open the lines of communication with your teenager and you become best friends. Rather, it’s a relationship that you want to nurture with your teenager built on trust and openness that would hopefully ensure that they will be open to the advice that you have.
So clickety clack away and have a look at goodtherapy.org! Have a good one all!
