2. Listen to your son(s) when they talk to you. Refrain from giving advice every time, but guide the discussion so they can form decisions for themselves and problem-solve using critical thinking skills.
3. Talk to your son(s) about the importance of love, affection, devotion, trust and treating people with respect.
4. Talk to your son(s) about your values and by what foundation it is built on; church, family stability, a strong work ethic and importance of education. These are different for each of us.
5. Ask your child about what they think about community issues and watch the news together.
6. Learn your child’s language. Preteens and teens speak using various terms and abbreviations. Learn what they are so you can better communicate on their level sometimes. Don’t just talk about sex, have discussions on drugs, alcohol (alcohol contributes to sexual intercourse), smoking and peer pressure. One survey showed that almost 1 out of 4 teens that had sex say they used drugs or drank alcohol the last time they had sex.Add a comment
