Being there for your teenagers

Continue to listen to your teenager and be there for them as you help them grow towards adulthood.

  • Being a good father means giving a reasonable degree of freedom
  • Discipline is best given in an atmosphere of unconditional love and specialness
  • Sometimes teenagers will push fathers away just when they really want us to stay and listen to them

Tips:

Set at-home office hours

If you work from home, set boundaries to work time so it doesn’t crowd out family time.

Tips:

Consistent family routine

Establish a set routine for your children that applies whether they are with you or with your partner or ex-partner.
