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



Try to be as accessible as you can for your kids.


Let them live their own lives

Encourage your children to have their own lives. Don't live your life through them.
