WHAT TO DO AFTER HAVING AN ARGUMENT WITH YOUR TEENAGER

Having a fight with your children, especially Teenagers is very normal. But often these conflicts go  out of hand. Basic disagreements often turn into heated or violent situations. Parents need to understand that before the situation escalates, they need to calm themselves down and need to find a solution.

Below listed are some tips on what to do after you have a fight with your Teenager:

 1.  Take some time off 

After the disagreement, you should take some time out. Because you’re still in that heated zone, any further conversation would just aggravate the situation. Take a walk outside, cool yourself down. 

2.  Think from Your Child’s Perspective 

Being a parent you should understand that you have also gone through the pade your Teenager is going through. You should understand that the adolescent age is such that Teenagers face certain problems of their own. Things are changing for them, and this is all new to them. So you should try to understand their situation. 

3.  Sit down together and have a conversation

In order to solve any conflict, a calm conversation is the best solution. After you have calmed down, you should sit down with your Teenagerand try to sort out the disagreement. Try to accept the mistakes, and listen out to what the child wants to say. 

4.  Accept Your Small Mistakes 

It's not always the case that Children are wrong. Sometimes the parents are not able to understand what their child is trying to say and they just feel that what they do is the correct way.

But sometimes, due to this lack of communication, the essence of the conversation gets lost. You need to reales that due to the age gap, there can be certain things that you might look at differently than your child. If you realise that you are wrong, then you should accept it, there is nothing wrong in that. 

5.  Do not hold any Grudge

 Sometimes what happens is that parents often get angry at the fact that their child tries to do something against their wishes. They hold grudges against their children for acting out. Most parents do this unintentionally, but this can further dissuade the child.

You need to keep a check on yourself and try to calm down. You should realise that if you explain to your child calmly, they will surely understand.

 

6.  Punishment is not the Solution

  If your Teenager has made a mistake, reprimanding them with a hard punishment is not a solution. Getting angry with them or punishing them can lead to situations spiralling out of control.

You should definitely reprimand the worst mistakes, but try to come up with constructive punishments. In this, the Teenagers will not only get a chance to understand their mistakes but also learn from them. Try to make them understand calmly so that they don’t consider you their enemy but a friend.

 

It is very important for you to understand that what your Teenager needs the most is the support and you understand the most.
