Make sure troubled teens know all the times when they are appreciated and loved...praising their good behavior will reinforce it in their minds
Saint George, UT (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Problems with teens occur within all shapes and sizes of families, even the homes that may seem the most structured. Helping a troubled teen might seem difficult, but many techniques, if known about, can be easily implemented into family life to help a troubled teen.
Nutritious and Healthy Meals: A good home-cooked meal with the right nutrient balance can do wonders for a teen, helping their functioning brain as well as their body, so they can have a healthy brain, creating a healthy life.
Communication Guidelines: Sit down and discuss a compromised system for communication for the times when parents and teens are faced with contentious situations. By building out a system of guidelines before the problems with teens and parents occur, the communication during these times will progressively get better.
Encourage, Praise, and Appreciate: Make sure troubled teens know all the times when they are appreciated and loved, thank them at any opportunity. Praising their good behavior will reinforce it in their minds, helping them make better decisions.
Computer and TV Time Lessened: Work on monitoring a teen’s time spent on the computer and TV or any other gaming system, but do this with caution as to not make the teen feel like they are under strict watch. Make them feel like they are making the decision to watch less or play less with electronics.
