Essential information for every blended family with teens
Have noticed you also noticed your teen or step teen will often believe their own faults should be overlooked?
Parents must keep their teen accountable for their actions. A parent has the ultimate responsibility to help their teen learn to control their impulses, but it’s certainly not easy.
If you’re having real problems with your teen or step teen’s behavior, discuss respectfully with them your expectations and consequences (Battling, Bending or Blending with Teenagers! as seen below has a whole section on this). Avoid getting into an argument or debate. Model self control, remembering your teen’s experiences during this time in their life will impact on how well adjusted they become as adults.
It’s particularly important to keep the lines of communication open with teens in a blended family.
Teenagers can be quiet challenging when it comes to conversing in a respectful manner. Both parents and stepparents can be tempted to take their teenager’s disrespectful attitude personally but it often comes with the territory. It’s therefore important that you have a planned approach on how to encourage considerate conversation. If problems go unaddressed, they can compound causing a breakdown of relationships with their parent and/or stepparent.
Here’s some great resources guaranteed to help you!
