In Language Arts class, we are reading a book called Cosmic. In Cosmic, the main character, Liam, is so tall that he pretends to be a dad to be able to go on an amusement park ride called “The Rocket.” Liam has a copy of the book Talk to Your Teen, and there are a few things I would like to add.
If you want your teen to accept you, then treat them as equals. Don’t ignore them like they’re little kids. Some adults treat their teens as if they are significantly inferior. This makes the teens aggravated, and less likely to listen to their parents. Some will shout and will say things that they will later regret. If parents treat their teens as equals, then their teens will feel respected, and will be more docile. They will answer questions respectfully, and treat their parents well.
