How do we deal with and care for teenagers

What is the role of parents at home?

The home is the primary cultural environment in which the child acquires the opinions, values, beliefs and traditions prevailing in the family, and their impact on the child appears through.

2- The culture of the family, which has the largest influencing factor in the values ​​and goals that the individual seeks to form.

3- The economic and social situation of the family.

As an example of the extent of the influence of the family on the life of a teenager, children who grew up in homes with an environment of trust and love were more compatible and understood the role of the family and formed their independent personalities with good qualities in a better way than children who grew up in homes dominated by family disputes.

Attention to adolescent physical health:

Attention to food and the type of nutrition for a teenager because his body needs a lot of proteins, which are necessary for building muscle, and calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D for bone growth and strength

2- Independence through opinion and rebellion:

Where most adolescents complain that their parents do not understand them and do not accept their independence, so he resorts to breaking any superpower or higher authority, breaking laws at home, and rebelling against someone who is greater than him to obtain his independence, considering rebellion is the correct method for him.
