Spoiled teenager. Important tips for parents.
It is not always easy to respond adequately to children’s needs! Out of a desire to provide whatever would bring them satisfaction, parents may tend to spoil them. In very simple terms, spoiling refers to the way parents respond inappropriately to children’s needs or wants.
It usually occurs when parents try to quickly, actively and often palpably fill the need behind the child’s behaviour.
Unfortunately, this type of response encourages the child to become dependent on the parent for the immediate fulfilment of his or her wishes. In the long run, he will be inclined to seek satisfaction from others rather than draw on his own resources. Moreover, it will not learn to tolerate and integrate healthy boundaries for optimal development, nor will it learn the mechanism of reciprocity.
Another reality, as a parent who knows the importance of your teen’s social life and that parties are a way to socialize and relax, is the responsibility of educating them to such situations. But a poorly planned and unsupervised party can result in unintended and even tragic consequences. However, parental responsibility is the key to a fun and safe party.
