Its not easy being a teenager—nor is it easy being the parent of a teenager.You can make your child feel angry,hurt,or misunderstood by what you say without realizing it yourself.It is important to give your child the space he needs to grow while making him realize that youll still be there for him when he needs you.
Expect a lot from your child,just not everything.Except for health and safety problems,such as drug use or careless driving,consider everything else open to discussion,if your child is unwilling to discuss something,dont insist he tell you whats on his mind.The more you insist,the more likely that hell clam up.Instead,let him attempt to solve (解决) things by himself.At the same time,remind him that youre always there for him if he seek advice or help.Show respect for your teenagers privacy(隐私).Never read his mail or listen in on personal conversations.
Teach your teenager that the family phone is for the whole family.If your child talks on the familys telephone for too long,tell him he can talk for 15 minutes,but then he must stay off the phone for at least an equal period of time.This frees up the line so that other family members can make and receive calls,teaches your teenager moderation(节制).Or if you are open to the idea,allow your teenager to have his own phone that he pays for with his own pocket money or a parttime job.

When a cat is frightened,its heart starts beating faster,its muscles get tense,and there are changes in the chemicals in its bloodstream.If the danger continues,it will defend itself,or it will run away as fast as possible.
Something like this also happens to people.When we are excited,angry,scared or aroused(冲动) by others emotions,our bodies go through many physical changes,all of which make us more alert(警惕的) and ready to react.We also get ready to defend ourselves or run.Human beings,however,have a problem that animals never face.If we give way to our feelings and let them take over,we can get into trouble.Have you ever said something in anger—or hit somebody—and regretted it later? Have you ever shouted at a teacher,told somebody you were lonely,or said you were in love,and then wished later you had kept your mouth shut? It isnt always wise to express your feelings freely.
Does this mean that its smarter always to hide our feelings? No! If you keep your feelings of anger,sadness,and bitterness hidden away or bottled up(掩饰) inside,your body stays tense.Physical illnesses can develop,and you can feel disturbed badly inside.It can actually be bad for your health.
You can try to treat emotions as if they were bananas in the cupboard.You can hide them and you can pretend they dont exist,but theyll still be around.And at last youll have to deal with them,just like those bananas.
