From nurturing your teens to making values clear, parents exert enormous influence over their children's development. It is especially important that parents give children a good start, but it's also important for parents to recognize that kids come into the world with their own temperaments, and it is the parents' job to provide an interface with the world that eventually prepares a child for complete independence. In a rapidly changing world, parenting seems subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some ways must compete with social media and its effect on their children.
There is such a thing as over-parenting, and aiming for perfection in parenting might be a fool's mission. Often, you feel isolated, uncertain and overwhelmed while trying to raise your teen, due to the absence of your sweet child and the blossoming of a young adult. You battle with the mommy-daddy guilt while trying to maintain your sanity in the world where life can be so demanding and overnight, your little sweetheart becomes distant, disobedient, and disrespectful. You don’t know what happened but you, are NOT alone!
