Most of their information comes from media that’s meant to be entertaining, not realistic.Make sure your child understands what it means to be in a loving and supporting relationship.
It may be hard to see your child growing up and finding new people to get close to, but if you take the right steps and teach them how relationships are supposed to be, they’re much more likely to make the right choices.
What breaks my heart is to hear young women and men think that their lives are over when someone breaks up with them or doesn’t love them in return.
The music they listen to is full of codependent messages with variations on the theme, “I can’t live without you.”The truth is that they live without someone else.
When it comes time to meet your teen’s date, be kind and respectful.
While you may want to give a lecture on the rules; their date is not the one you should be talking to.
