ParenthoodTo most of us the event that naturally follows marriage is childbirth. However, more and more young couples are not taking parenting as a natural occurrence and neither are they treating it casually with an attitude that says, one will learn to handle it “once the children come.” In fact, a surprisingly noticeable number of young couples are deciding against having children. While others are waiting to have their first child fairly late.

Take for instance Rohini and  Prashant. Both in their early thirties. Both were very successful in their respective careers. The couple have a common passion for dogs. They have two adorable dogs- Bruno and Bozo. And according to Rohini, “we have decided not to have children because we feel that given the kind of hectic schedules we have to follow we will not be able to meet the demands of parenthood adequately.”

TeensPeer pressure impacts everybody at some point in time irrespective of how popular or close knit your friend circle is. This is probably what prompted Dennis Wolfberg to say, “There’s one advantage of being 102. There’s no peer pressure.”

Peer pressure can manifest itself in many forms. And it can effect even very young children. Ms. Reza, mother of a three year old says, “I always thought that peer pressure is something that only teenagers had to cope with. But, I soon realized how wrong I was. My three year old daughter was crazy about Barbie shoes. But after a few days she refused to wear them. When asked why, the child said because her friends said that they didn’t like it. I was really baffled.” This is a very simplified example. Things can get very complex.

It is important for us as parents to be aware of the fact that children begin to explore the various relationships they have relationship with the primary caregivers (parents), the peer group, the teachers etc. It is during this time they also figure out their individuality and where they stand in relationship with others.

Today's TeensThe definition of “independence” is different for the 18-year-olds of today. Fact is, fewer work or go on to college right out of high school. More remain dependent on Mom and Dad, who house and support them for longer than parents have done so in the past. Independence day for these kids seems to be coming later and later in life.

These kids aren’t all selfish, immature, and overly-dependent. This is a generation that seems to be taking longer to grow up, and doesn’t mind living off of Mom and Dad for as long as they are able. Somewhere yesteryear generation — where we couldn’t wait to get out of our parent’s house — and this generation that seems content to remain at home, there’s been a definite shift in what kids consider to be “independence.”

TeensParenting teens is not just about caring for their physical and educational needs. It’s also about training your teen to handle what life will later dish out, with body and soul intact. It’s about teaching self-control.

After all, your child will spend 80% of his lifetime away from you.  So, you need to ask yourself this question: “Am I willing to relinquish control to my teenager before he leaves home in order to help him learn how to act and become the one God desires him to be?”

Teens gradually need to get their feet wet in decision-making, since one day soon they will be fully in control of their own life and self-control will be paramount. Your main goal, then, should be about preparation for making good life decisions. It’s more than teaching how to handle the finances, or how to pick the best classes, or driving responsibly. It’s about training them to be godly men or women and developing their character.

Parenting teensParenting teenagers is full of extremes. There are great joys while parenting teenagers and also great disappointments. The teen years are a time when the child is slowly separating themselves from their parent’s tight hold and parents need to realize this.

Each child needs to gradually be weaned off the total parental control into a world of adulthood. This can be a difficult experience but also an exciting one. As a parent, one has been working to prepare his child for adulthood and now the goal is about to be achieved. A parent needs to celebrate the teenagers step towards independence while continuing to provide a safety net.
