 Article Title :: Parenting Your Teenager: Are You the Guide or the Enemy?
 
``How was school today?''``Fine.''``What did you do today?''``Nothing.''``How do you think you did on your test?''``I don't know.''``When will you know?''``Mom, will you guys quit bugging me?!''Many of the families I work with seem to have trouble communicating with their teen-agers.To a certain extent, in developmental terms, this is normal. As children reach the teen years, it's normal for them to begin to pull away from their parents and to relate more to their peers.Teen-agers usually view their parents as either the enemy or guides to growing up. If you are the enemy, they will learn to con and lie to you, which ca  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Communicating with Your Teenager
 
Savita, a student of English Literature from Bangalore's Mount Carmel College, goes with her friends every Saturday to a pub on M.G.Road. She knows her mother will never approve, so she gives different reasons for staying out. Ask her if she doesn't feel guilty doing so; she gives a pat "no". Then she reflects and says she would love to tell her parents just as she tells some of her friends; but her "mother will never understand". She asks me if "right" and "wrong" isn't relative, and why parents want to keep them on a leash. She asserts she would like to be responsible for shaping her own destiny. Savita's mother Lakshmi is blissfully unaware of her daughter's activities, and   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Parenting Your Teenager: Driving is a Right......... Right?
 
Q. My teenage son is turning 16 early next year and he's already lobbying us for a new car. He says all his friends are getting new cars, that he deserves one because it's his right when he turns 16, and he won't drive what he calls a POS car. Do you think he is trying to manipulate us, and what do you think we should do? And since he won't tell us what a POS car is, do you know?A. What to do depends on what you want to accomplish.If you want to teach your son that he can pester and manipulate you into giving him his way, then by all means get him a new car.I know that's not what you want to teach him though. What you have is an excellent opportun  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Parenting: 5 Ways to Show Love to Your Children
 
1. Spend time with your kids. We spell love L-O-V-E. Children and teens spell it T-I-M-E. The myth that the quality of time is more important than the quantity of time spent with children is just that - a myth.We would not buy this lie if a surgeon told us, "I was not able to spend as much time as I would have liked on your surgery, but the few moments I did spend was really quality time."We want both quantity and quality. So do our kids. I've worked with many people who have provided everything for their children except themselves. How nice and big your house looks from the outside is much less important to your kids than how it feels to be on the inside of your home  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Stand on Your Head and Laugh: Kids These Days
 
Over the course of spring and summer breaks, my teenage kids find multiple ways to antagonize me. One of my daughter's favorite complaints is, "...I'm bored. There is nothing to do." Of course, my response is always, "...there's plenty of things to do," with a continuation of the myriad listing of ideas, tasks and other events in which she can partake. Ideally, she would have me take her mall shopping, cruising the beach strip, and ultimately become her sole entertainment planner and provider during her "vacation" period.Suddenly, it dawns on me that I was once the tyrannical 10-year old who "had nothing to do..." My dad's exhausted reply to me then was, "...stand on   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Parenting: How to Get Both Parents on the Same Page
 
Q. My spouse and I cannot agree on how to raise our kids. I think my spouse is too strict and my spouse thinks I am too lenient. Meanwhile, the kids are getting away with everything. What can we do?A. This is an excellent and all-too-common question. So, in typical therapist fashion, I'm going to begin my answer with a question.Where in the world did we get the idea that two parents have to agree on every aspect of parenting? Somehow, we are supposed to believe that two separate individuals, who grew up with different models of how to parent (if they had models at all), different life experiences and probably different temperaments, are now going to come togeth  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Parenting Your Teenager: 3 Powerful Points
 
Point One: Raising teen-agers can be very toughAt no other time since birth are there so many abrupt and huge changes going on with both the child and the family. Going through the passage of adolescence is one of the most difficult tasks a family will ever undertake.What may be difficult for one family may be clear sailing for the next. I've known families who have struggled with a kid keeping curfew, and others who struggled with a son stealing the car and going to California. It may seem as if the family with the stolen car had a more serious and painful situation.But consider this: If you have a broken thumb and I have a broken leg, my injury might be more   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Finding Your Spirit in the Kitchen Sink
 
It felt like my nerves were scraping against one another.It had been one of those rare nights in which everyone had gone to bed at a decent hour and woke up at just the right time. But I felt jangled and all tossed up inside. My eyelids felt like sandpaper and all I wanted to do was crawl into a corner, draw my knees to my chest, and crack open a thick, meaty book, not emerging again until I had turned the very last page.But it was Wednesday and my little girls had other plans - as they always do."Mommy, Callie is getting bigger." Cassidy said."Yes, she is honey.""Mommy, I said 'Callie is getting bigger.'""She sure is, honey.""Callie,  (read full article)

 Article Title :: I Can't Find My Homework, Mom! "Ask My Dear, and It Shall be Given to You!"
 
Do you believe in asking God, or whatever higher power you choose to believe in, for the answers you need, when you need them? Read below for an enlightening story about my 11 year old daughter's missing homework papers.The problem started when my daughter took a break from her homework to eat dinner. She asked me if she could take it in her room and work on it while watching TV.(Not a good idea, BTW). Even the best of us moms have our weak moments. :o)Anyhow, by the time dinner was over, there was no homework to be found.As with all lost items, I suggested the usual mom replies. "Retrace your steps." "Think, where was the last place you wrote an answer down  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Co-Sleeping - Is It Right For You And Your Baby?
 
Since civilization began, mothers have taken advantage of the convenience of sleeping with their babies. It has only been in the past two centuries among industrialized and Western nations that sleeping separately from your baby has become appropriate. Research shows that infants who share a bed with their mothers cry less often and nurse for longer periods of time. Co-sleeping will provide extra nourishment at night and added protection for your baby. Sleeping with the mother gives the baby a steady supply of feelings and sensations that could possibly compensate for the neurological immaturity an infant has at birth.Co-sleeping may provide some protections from SIDS (sudden   (read full article)
