As it is holiday time and we have our lovely children at home. I have two teenage daughters at home and at the moment we are up the central coast with my step daughter and her gorgeous little 2 year old Montana. I have a 17 year old who will be enjoying this break as when she returns back to school Year 12 will commence and the pressure will be on, not from me, from herself. My 14 year old will just chill and hopefully catch up with some friends ready for the last term of year 8.
I believe holiday time is the time where we need reminding that there behaviour, mood swings are not intentional.
Teenage behavioural issues, are not intentional or done out of sheer malice. A teenager is a child growing into adulthood. Teenagers need their parents to be parents as they have many friends at school. like all behaviour is changeable, because the majority of behaviour is a pattern or a habit.
