Teenagers and their fathers/father figures

Tell your teenagers you love them, even when they are testing your patience.

  • The times when teenagers are the most rebellious, obnoxious and even hurtful are the times when they need the most love
  • Tell them you are there for them, no matter what happens, especially during tough times

Tips:

Learn about parenting

Take the opportunity to read books and websites, listen to talks and discuss fathering (and, more generally, parenting) with others.

Tips:

Talking about sexuality with boys and girls

Don’t avoid the topic of sexuality with your children – both girls and boys.
