Advice and Tips
1. This is the stage in your child in which he or she has to make decisions that will affect him or her for the rest of their lives. Bear inmind that what they say or do today maybe different than what they say or do tomorrow.
2. Be there for them for this is a time inwhich emotions can run wild so be patient.
3. Watch for changes in friends, patterns of behavior, clothing, hygiene and activities, they are all outward signs in what is going on inside their minds.
4. Set reasonable rules, restrictions and expectations. They may complain but in reality they thrive on understanding where their place is in the family.
5. Don't let modern technology or social networking dominate their lives. Give them a variety of experiences that will enrich their experiences.
6. Work with them on the dreams and hopes for what they are to do after graduation. Not all students are ment to go to college. Some really want to work with their hands and minds outside of a college or university,.
