Why do today's parents do not understand what a teenagers life is all about?
Answer . Answer . This is not the type of question that can be answered with a simple statement. Questions regarding human behavior require a lot of clinical data before making a rational assessment of the particular situation.. Human emotions and related behavior cannot be summarized in a few… paragraphs of literature. There is no recipe for Love or any other emotional situation, where a singular perspective can be recommended as the ultimate solution. Each situation requires essential background data on all the persons involved in influencing the psychological and physiological development of the child in question.. These influences may come from the community, the school, the Internet, the television, the family and relatives. The ability to understand your children is an essential parenting skill that many parents do not have. There is quite a lot of literature available on the subject of parenting. You can help yourself by learning and practicing some important parenting skills.. Some of the most important skills required in understanding your child are in communication, observation and patients. If you do not have an established and trusted communication link with your children, it will be much more difficult for you to try and understand them. If you have not established a relationship of trust, compassion and patients when dealing with your children then they may loose confidence and affection for you. They may turn their attention to other more influential persons around them who may encourage them to deceive you whenever the opportunity arises. If your relationship with your spouse is filled with conflict then the potential exists for your children to play one parent against the other.. Children are usually very skillful in finding your weakness and then emotionally manipulating you at their whim and fancy. Being a good parent takes a lot of hard work and dedication. You must be stern but not rigid, you must be gentle but not a softie, you must be loving but not insecure, you must be decisive but not autocratic in other words you must be balanced in your responsibility as an exemplar to your children.

Answer . Well, I am a Grandmother with an 18 year old granddaughter living with me. She came to live with me when she was 15. She lived with her dad and her stepmother. This was a very real case of Cinderella. My granddaughter was on restriction, literally 9 months out of the year. And while she… was on restriction she had to clean, I mean scrub floors on her knees,, even rub her stepmothere's feet. She was not allowed to see me at all, because that was something that made her happy. I was really scared she would hurt herself because she was so depressed. Well, we finally got her signed as an independent, in school, anywheree. Her dad signed everything over to me. This child is like a different person today. Everyone who sees her says they can't believe her confidence and the sparkle in her eye. You have to think of the child and the circumstances. I am so thankful she is out of that household. (MORE)

Most parents do understand their children. They were, after all, children once themselves. Unfortunately, adults sometimes forget what it was like to be a child and expect more from their children than they are mature enough to handle.
A parent who understands their children will be a good listener.They will be loving and forgiving. They will understand that kidsare kids and not hold them to a high standard.

I hv a debate in school i want to ask where can i get good written matter on the topic today's teenager more worldlywise than their parents?
It is most likely that today's parents spell better than their children, and in the day and age of spell check, it is unimaginable that anyone would have such a problem with spelling and grammatical errors. Worldly is considered to be a form of wisdom and it is a frustration for both young and old t…hat youth is wasted on the young and wisdom wasted on the old. Today's teenagers have more access to information than any generation before them but this does not necessarily mean that todays teenagers are accessing that information or that if they are accessing it that they are understanding what it means. Todays adults are often guilty of assuming that because we are a modern society we are smarter, even wiser than those generations that came before us. This assumption will lead many people to make assertions that Laws or doctrines written several hundred years ago are obsolete and have no real bearing on the modern world of today. Sadly, most people that make these kind of assumptions have not even read the Laws or doctrines they assert are obsolete and if they have not read that which they criticize then it is reasonable to suspect that they have not read as much as those people hundreds of years ago who discovered the Laws or drafted these doctrines. If we are not better read than Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Paine or Sir Francis Bacon and their access to information was more limited than our own. If we are not, as a whole better read and better educated than people who lived more than two hundred years ago, what difference does it make if teenagers today are more worldly than their parents? As in many ways JJ goes straight for the jugular... & why not? I just wonder whether the (mis) typing of the question was deliberate on the part of the questioner..... But then I would trype that, wouldn't I, being the cynic that I am. I think the simple answer to the question is this means: the Internet, something our parents, even the parents of todays teenagers barely dreamt of. Failing that the questioner should sound out his or her peers and try to evaluate just how worldwise they are & then try to make a valued judgment with regard to parents & others of previous generations. But worldly wisdom is a very nebulous concept, so I wish you well in your quest..... Addendum: Thank you JR for your input. Any attack on the question itself was not intentional, but in my zealous plea that we all spend more time informing ourselves, it occurs to me after re-reading the original answer that I have not really answered the question at all. The question is, of course, where can good written material on the topic of the teenagers being more worldly than their parents be found? The internet is absolutely a place to find this sort of information and may I recommend starting with some of these web sites: pewresearch.org/pubs/808/writing-technology-and-teens or Washingtonpost.com and find the excellent article What Teens Really Think written by Richard Morin, October 23rd 2005. These are just two bits of writing that address the question directly, and if you ask Google if teens are more worldly than their parents Google has about 563,000 entries for this question alone. Whew! That's a lot of research. It would be nice, however, if instead of spending all that effort reading what others are saying about the "worldlywisdom" of teenagers, if in this debate the questioner is on the advocacy side of teens being more worldly than their parents, perhaps it would be a stronger argument to present some world problems of today in this debate and offer real world solutions from a teen age point of view thus proving the worldliness of teens rather than appealing to authority. It seems to me a debate such as this could be a whole lot of fun if it were teens debating their parents in a formal debate. Teenagers today are far too often dismissed as being a part of some overall problem rather than being acknowledged for who they really are, which is the future of this world and they are as much a part of the solution today as they will be long after JR and myself are long gone. They are every bit as powerful as their parents or adults and they are every bit as frustrating as many parents bemoan. In this debate of the "worldlywise" demeanor of teens vs their parents, I still plea for an effort by teens to embrace the classic literature, poetry, plays and philosophy that generations before you have embraced as knowledge is something we discover and not what we make. It is fine to enter into a debate about an issue if you are well informed on the matter, it is another matter entirely to enter that debate simply because you have an opinion. In today's world too many people are satisfied with having an opinion and content to call that knowledge. I have debated people on certain issues and at some point find myself compelled to ask if they have read a certain writing on the issue only to discover that they have read very little in regards to the issue in debate. This phenomena is most noticeable when debating communism. When I ask people if they have read Das Kapital, most have not. Two people, at separate times, in separate debates, actually told me that they had read all the important parts of that book. Now there's a valuable technique for study. I would love to be able to discern all the important parts from the not so important parts of tomes such as Das Kapital as that would save an awful lot of time reading and re-reading Marx trying to understand exactly what it is he is saying. Perhaps if I read only the important parts I would be a Marxist too. Then again Marx himself is quoted as saying: "I am not a Marxist." and I suspect he is referring to the vast majority of people who joined that religion without reading that particular bible. In terms of intentional misspellings and invented words such as "worldlywise", (which is a word like samelyredundant.), it is fine if u r 2 cool 2 use standard grammatical usage but this is merely style and does little to inform us of the substance of what it is u r trying 2 say. If u r a really cool then you know what u r saying and you say what you mean regardless of how it is u r saying it. If u think u r more worldlywise than ur parents cuz u have effectively mangled the English language i hope u at some point come 2 realize that style over substance does not make u worldlywise regardless of ur clever usage of letters and numbers. If u r worldlywise then u hv something to share with us all and I look forward to translating your wisdom from the worldlywise language of teens who text, e-mail and chat on the net into my old fuddy duddy language I have come to adore so, and rely upon so desperately. LOL! :) (MORE)

Teenage parents are teenagers who have a baby. This means that they have had sex and the girl has given birth. Unfortunately, the percentage of teenage parents in America is growing.
yes as soon as you understand that they are experiencing the same growth and changes we are/have to by letting go a little (we tend to hold on to what WE DID and probably got away with)and what could happen,at this point of parenting we are also transitioning

The use of the term "teen or teenager" did not happen until 1939. Today a "teen" is a person 13-18 years old although we often refer to a "teen" as 19 or 20. Since 18 is the age of consent and adulthood I would not call a person 18 a teen.
in comparison to 20 years ago, they are NOT as healthy, however, if a teen gets plenty of good food and excersise and rest then , the teen is very healthy. Culture and environments changes over time, people lived to the ripe old age of 45 to 50 200 years ago, with the medicines of today we can live …to double that. (MORE)

The adult world is so overwhelming that adults often forget how younger generations think.

In the United States on average 50 percent of marriages end up in divorce. When teenagers marry the average is closer to 70 percent. I bring those figures up because one of the most important things for a child to develop to their full potential is a stable home life with a father and mother. You wo…uld be more likely to be successful if you waited until you were older to become a parent.. That being said if a teenager is already expecting a child, then you can still be a good parent, it just takes love and dedication. (MORE)

yeah pretty much all teens do. being a teen isn't really as good as everyone makes it seem more and more teens these days are being treated for depression. there is a lot of pressure put on the teens these days and its almost an overload but another reason teens go through the whole life sucks and i… wanna die phase is because teens are very emotional because of all the changes happening to there bodies at this age and little things can end up triggering a teen to feel depressed. so yes most teens do go through that phase and that phase does mean you are depressed and you should get some help or something. it really does help out and gets you through your depression faster than just trying to wait it out.

Can a teenager choose a parent if that parent signed over rights when the child was a baby but is now in that child's life?
If you are living with adoptive parents but would rather live with a biological parent, I would suggest that you talk to your adoptive parents about it and see if some agreement can be reached. As a teenager you are old enough to be ready to at least start making your own decisions about how you wa…nt to live your life. But if your adoptive parents don't agree, I wouldn't advise you to fight about it - at least, not unless they are physically abusive, in which case you can apply to the courts for a legal remedy. Of course, by the age of 18 you will legally have the right to live where you choose and associate with whom you choose. (MORE)
teenagers are hard to understand because their going through a stage in there life were they think moms and dads are imbarrasing, and when parents try to talk to their kids it makes it worse, just wait until there in there later teen years to talk to them.
If a project can be compared to the life cycle of a human, then humans need different things during their life. Very basically, as babies we need nurturing, as we grow we are educated, then we can get jobs and then we retire. During each of these cycles our inputs and outputs are different. from a p…roject point of view, failure to understand this will mean you will either be using the wrong type of resources, stay in a cycle too long (i.e. expending both times and resources unnecessarily), don't have clean hand-overs (i.e. again wasting effort) between life cycles, or as a lot of projects tend to do just go on and on expending/wasting resources that could be far more usefully deployed on other projects. Having clear and well defined understanding of what cycle you are in, brings focus to a project in order to get you to the next phase or to the delivery point and ultimately the support and close out phase.

Your parents will understand you to a level that you want them to understand you too. If you tell them everything about your life how you fell they should understand you. If you only tell them scrapes of information they are bound not to know them very well. Sometimes a parent may be uninterested bu…t there will ALWAYS be people interested in you who want to get to know you. Sometimes the relationship you have with your parents or the people you live with will be strained. This is like all relationships in life you have to face up to them and try and mend them.

Pretty much the same way it has always affected life . A persons religion or theology affects their decisions and choices. Even a man who claims no belief in God has his own theology. In this case he is his own god making his own choices, while others look to a certain god for wisdom and guidance…. For some reason, all mankind is born with an inner desire to seek God. Some find Him, some find their own god, and others find that they are enough in life for themselves. But only one of these options offers soul security. (MORE)
Well I'm a teen and I'm interested in hanging out with my friends, cellphones, computers (in a non-geeky way), fitness and working out, what I eat so I can get skinny, TV definantly. Things like that. I like to cook but that's probably just me. Hope this helped! :D
i would say it would be easier to be the parent of a teenager, because some parents would just leave their kids to do what they want, and have brought them up to be responsible enough to know what is right and what is wrong. teenager because if ur a parent it would be sad 2 leave your kid,:(
Fear, insecurity, lack of honesty, with other people and ourselves, egos, jealousy. If a person is honest with themselves and other people it can be easier. Most people can't be. Look in the mirror and be honest about what you see. Not just the reflection, but who you see. Not pleasant it's true, bu…t if you can do it and come to terms with yourself, you will interact better with other people and be able to understand them better. The species is flawed also, and that makes it difficult to connect. Totally non religious, the Golden Rule is a dandy concept, but very few people follow it.

The greatest right you could exercise is the placement of her in a Home for Unwed Mothers until she is an adult. Yes, they still exist. We have one here in Kansas City.

Ok i asked the question, and I'm just gonna expand on that. I have dyslexia. Its pretty mild which i think is MORE of a problem. My parents are aware o it but don't pay attention to it.

TV shows such as Jersey Shore, Degrassi (the new one on Much TV) and others promote sexaual relationships at very young ages, and they make it seem "normal".
