We have two boys at living home and they are currently ages 12 and 16 years old. If you ever had teenagers at home before you know they can be a challenge at times. If you have kids that are still young just wait. LOL
It is fun talking to parents with kids to ones that have kids that are grown up and out of the house now. It is nice sharing like stories and experiences. It can also be a learning experience. Then there are people that have never had kids before and never been married but they are experts at raising kids they think. Every situation can be different and so many things can influence each situation for sure.
When I lived in Minnesota I went to a seminar for Raising Teenagers. The speaker basically said that after ager 12 to adulthood they are consider young adults. He said they older they get they will pull away from their parents and friends will be more important to them. If this didn’t happen they would live at home for ever. LOL
The speaker also gave examples of his own life raising teenagers and how the older they get the more freedom you need to give them and let them make mistakes. He said though you can still have things that you wont bend on and other things you may not push the issue. For instance, eating a sandwich after school you may let ride even though it may ruin their appetite for supper but them saving 25% of all money they make you wont bend on.
Bottom line we want our kids to be happy, healthy and successful adults when they get older. If you have kids or had kids please let us know your thoughts to the below questions on what your rules or standards would be;
