If your child is just about to enter the portals of teenage, or if he or she is already a teenager, it would be appropriate for you to get prepared to engage in healthy dialogue with your teen, on topics that need to be discussed but ones that most parents avoid talking about altogether or just get embarrassed about how best to handle them. As parents, we should try to get into an open mode of conversation with our child, especially when he is a teenager. Adolescence is a tricky stage, too many restrictions and the teenager is quick to blame you for being so ‘rigid’, too much of access and many times, the teenager could land himself into serious trouble.
So how much is too much? And how do you know when it is right to let go, and when it is safe to hold on?
