“How i deal with a teenager”

published 05/02/2007

Pro Watching them grow from a child to an adult

Contra Watching them turn into Kevin and perry

My daughter is 15 years old almost 16, and i can tell you its not been easy at times, but overall she is a good kid that has been through an awful lot. When my daughter was 3 myself and my husband split up, but i think she was to really to young to understand what was going on, and quickly got...

[NB: this is a partly-rewritten version of an article on teenagers that I wrote a few years ago for my home education web-site. I've used male pronouns throughout to refer to a teenager because I have sons myself, but each time it could of course equally refer to a girl.] Teenagers get a pretty...

ProFrom a teens point of view

ContraIm not a parent

I would still class myself as a teenager, so i really hope i can help some parents here on keeping a good relationship with their children. Well, the situation in my house is, my parents are happily married and have been for 24 years, so obviously, i may act differently from teens living with one...

Not for me

Pro???

Contra! ! !

What is worse: to be a teacher and have a class of more than thirty highly pubertal boys and girls for 45 minutes every day or to be a parent and have one child of this age group at home? The worst scenario is, of course, to be a teacher teaching the age group in question and be a parent at the...

“Teenagers and Trying Times.”

published 01/07/2004

ProFew and far between but rewarding in the end.

ContraWhere do you want me to start?

Before I start this I just want to say to all you teenagers here on Ciao that this is not in any way meant as detrimental, there are some very talented and mature members out there and they are still in their teens but for parents it can be a tough time. Your no longer a child and you are like a...

Contrathey have tantrums and can still dribble

I have two teenagers. Two boys. They were lovely babies, lovely little boys and they are actually lovely teenagers. But just don't tell them that I said so. People were only too keen to wish troublesome teenagerdom upon me as they had been so lovely.."it can't last, they'll go off the rails etc...

“Glad I'm not one now.”

published 24/12/2003

ProGreat bunch of people

ContraNo more than the rest of the human race

I like teenagers. I have a teenage daughter and work with 13-19 year old people full time so I get to spend a fair amount of time with them. First of all there is no them and us. It's easy to label younger people and lump them all together as drinking, swearing druggies who don't like work. Sure...

ProIf you do it right, you'll have a great time

ContraPeople don't listen to each other

I felt that I should write this review, having read all the others in this category. I'm not a parent, I'm a teenager just leaving the wrongly labelled "Terrible Teens". I wanted to write this review from the other side. The side that everyone dreads... I'm a teenager. Everyone either IS one, HAS...

“One of a kind : The Teenager”

published 13/10/2004

ProI'm a teenager.

ContraAsk my parents... They'll give you lots.

Well I guess I can only vouch for being a teenager and not parenting one, but I am dreading the day I have a child that hits the Teenage Years. I'm a teenager - a 16 year old one to be exact. I hate the way older adults treat us young 'un's. It's so patronizing and annoying. Because my boyfriend...

ContraOoh quite a few...

Having my first baby just nine days before my 21st birthday should make me a young mum. I should be able to relate to my child as she gets older and those teenage years should be much easier, with a small age gap between mother and daughter. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case. My...

What can I do to help prevent my children falling into the Disobedience, drugs, violence, crime and sex? We all despair when we see innocent young children turn into teenage tearaways, giving thought only to themselves and there own selfish needs, yet rebuking anyone who dares to cross the...
