Parenting in the arena of Adolescent

Youth experience major cognitive, biological, and social shifts during adolescence. Although parental guidance is likely to play an important role in helping adolescents navigate the associated challenges, relevant developmental shifts during this time period—such as an adolescent’s growing desire for individuation and autonomy may alter the parent–child relationship in ways that make such guidance particularly difficult. This trend is likely to lead to increased tension in the parent–child relationship and may subsequently increase the stress that a parent feels regarding his or her parenting role. Such stress may be magnified when rearing a child with behavioural challenges, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Healthy parenting plays a very important role in order to deal with Adolescent in the House. Only mentally Healthy parents can raise their child in the Best Way.
