Teenagers are often stubborn; they would rather not agree with you. This is due to the growth of the brain and the will to become independent. If you're always disagreeing with your teen, then you can have a lot of arguments. Let your teenager be stubborn. This is good. When teenagers are stubborn, it means that they develop. They stand up for themselves and for things they are working on.
How do you deal with your stubborn teenager?
- Listen to your teenager. Instead of telling them what to do, you can let teenagers think of what they can do.
- Explain why you want something. For example, explain why you want your daughter to come home on time.
- Negotiate rules together. For example, indicate that you want your son to change his bed once a week - no more. Do not interfere too much with his room.
- Let teenagers discover the consequences of their behavior. Does your son not throw his sports clothes in the laundry basket? Do not do it yourself.
