Watching your teenager grow up can be an adventurous time for parents as teenage milestones are being met and graduation gets closer for your student. In the third and last part of the “Achieving Motivation” series for parents, Hope High School Online, an Arizona virtual high school, gives insight into the power of beginning to let go. Letting your teenager take the lead during this time in their life gives your teenager opportunities to mature.
The “Achieving Motivation” series uncovers how to motivate your teen in a virtual high school in Arizona and establish positive mindsets that help your student succeed. Now we discover what may be the most challenging part in the series – how to step back when your teenagers are in a difficult season in their lives.
Enjoy a Less Stressful Household With Your Teenager By Learning to Let Go
Stepping back is a process, and with practice, giving your teenager more control can be a positive choice. The transition can go smoothly with input from both parents and teenagers, including direct, honest communication. Even though this “hands-off” method takes the utmost discipline to carry out, it can work for your teenager. We want the best for our children, but they need the opportunity to pursue the best for themselves. Allow your student to rise to the occasion when given a chance – the way they handle their situation may surprise you.
Start simple by not picking up their belongings, or give them adult responsibilities like doing their own laundry. Walking away from the situation after communicating your expectations can be difficult. But if expectations aren’t met, let your teen face natural consequences, the best teacher of all!
