How to Get My Teenager to ListenJun 30, 2022
How to get your teenager to listen to your advice - Friends that are a bad influence.
Two points to consider:
Your teen needs to go through the experience of deciding for themselves that their friends are a bad influence. The parents' role is to coach and support them as they learn to distinguish a good friendship from a bad one.
Next, as parents we can be intentional about creating a home environment where the teenager feels loved and supported. This will provide a point of reference for your teenager to compare their friendships.
Learning to recognize when a friendship is toxic will serve your teenager for the rest of their life.
A change in perspective … changes everything.
