This phase contains the most cherished memories that make us remember for a long time, even until the last of our life.One of the nicest memories of teenage guys is the first crush. The feeling like the attraction,upset, infatuation, etc, are brand new and commonly temporary, but most of guys feel like it is going to last for a lifetime.
Teen dating can be a wonderful and fun time where self confidence is built up, and dating techniques are learned. Attorney General reports that 38 percent of date rape victims are girls between the age of 14 and 17. Teach them how to date, how to have respect for one another and how to protect themselves from emotional and physical hurt. Your relationship for your child speaks far louder than anyone’s words. Help them pay attention to the voice inside that says, “I’m uncomfortable in this situation and don’t want to do this.” Teach them to trust their judgment. Tell your sons that having sex does not make them a man and tell your daughters that having sex does not make them cool. Make sure both your son and daughter understand that, and that they should come to you or another parent/teacher/counselor if they feel at all threatened or oppressed by their boyfriend or girlfriend. “I’m not sure…” from a girl can mean “I just need to be pushed or pressured some more before I say yes” to her date. Tell boys if they hear “No” then proceeding anyway is rape. Tell boys they are not expected to try a million different ways to get sex.
Teens also learn how to be both assertive and compromising, how to be giving to another and how to expect the same in return. Show them how you compromise, stick up for yourself, give and expect respect and argue but love your spouse. Tell girls that they do not need to have sex to keep a guy. Many kids are having these forms of sex because they tell themselves it’s not really sex. Then tell them about contraception and sexually transmitted diseases.
Before you know it, your teen may be entering the dating world.
For many, raising a teenager is the most intimidating chapter of parenthood.
You want them to listen to your opinion, yet at the same time feel they are making up their own mind.
From schoolwork to growing older, to puberty and parents, teenagers have a lot of stress in their lives.
Encourage them to come to you with any question or conflict.
Try to be open to discussing it, rather than lecturing them.
Teenage phase also is the period that guys need to learn how to build relationships with many people around them and also how to attract girls.
