Summary

The purpose of this summary is definitely NOT to tell parents how to connect and communicate.  You know your son better than anyone else does.  I am simply presenting some ideas for you to consider for ways to strengthen your relationship with your teenage son.

The following are some takeaways from the article Parenting a Teenage Boy (including a few more quotes for you!)

    • “Once your child reaches the age of 13 or 14 they know your opinion of everything under the sun. Your job from now on is to shut up and listen.”

 

    • “Things change. As adults, we think we know all about the teenage world, but this swiftly moving planet has spun beyond our intimate knowledge of the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s. And here’s what I’ve learned: when you take the time to listen, truly listen, your kids will ask your opinion.”  Michelle Lehnardt, Today.com

 

    •  

 

    • Teach our children to value people who are different than they are.  That can be race, gender, religous our political beliefes, sexual orienation, or anything that they percieve as different from themselves.
    • Model and value empathy.  “Modeling is very important. It’s okay to let your teenagers see that you are human too. For example, tell them a story about a time when you might have suspected a friend was in trouble, what you were thinking about at the time, and what you did to help.” Melbourne Child Psychology

 

    • Teenagers must learn that not everyone is going to like you.  Rejection is a part of life.  It does not mean that there is anything wrong with either the person being rejected or the person doing the rejecting.  Sometimes people’s life experiences, beliefs, values, interests, and desires can make them incompatible for one another.  Trying to force someone to like you will never work.  “You’ll know that you will have reached maturity when you know there are people who don’t like you, but it doesn’t bother you.”  Bill Williams

 

    • Be open to seeing things from someone else’s point of view.  The way we see something is not always correct, not always accurate, and hardly ever will be the way others see that same situation.

 

    • When dating No means No.  It doesn’t mean to try harder.  

 

    • “Real men do not need to build themselves up by making another person feel weak.” Errin Spencer, ModernMom

 

  • Abuse of any kind is a sign of weakness on the part of the abuser.
