Adolescent Parenting Summary & Conclusion

Angela Oswalt Morelli , MSW, edited by C. E. Zupanick, Psy.D.

Parents are charged with the significant challenge of providing their youth opportunities to practice developing their problem-solving skills and allowing them to learn from their mistakes; while still keeping them safe and correcting them before they can make a serious or deadly mistake. This article provided parents with guidance and suggestions for helping teens and older adolescents make wise decisions in the areas of nutrition, sleep, clothing, housing, hygiene, exercise, medical care, and safety. Armed with a greater understanding of adolescent development, parents gained insight about nurturing teenager's healthy growth and independence while still providing guidance and direction with boundaries and discipline. The article also provided parents helpful advice and suggestions to help children navigate difficult situations such as: learning to drive, dealing with dating violence, contending with peer violence and gangs, struggling with bullying, and experimenting with alcohol and other drugs.
