arents everywhere struggle to respond appropriately to the challenging behaviour, hit-or-miss communication, and fluctuating moods we see in teenage girls. No wonder parents are overwhelmed at the sight of the growing girl, her mood and the aspirations that come in the way of a make or break situation. The parent-daughter relationship continues from the days of teenage and last even after the marriage or even after becoming the mother of two. When a child abuses a parent, the problem often goes unreported. It is maintained as a top secret to maintaining the prestige of the family.
Parents have a natural desire to protect their children, so the idea of seeking mental and even legal help is dismissed in the interest of protecting the abuser. It is time to use patience and perseverance. This is done all while attempting to preserve the parent-child relationship. However, when your teenage daughter goes out of control, then her mother comes to her rescue. It is time to end the behavioural changes with timely communication and go to the extent of helping out of the way to provide a congenial atmosphere within the family cadre.
Apart from behavioural change even the dress sense of the teenage girls change as per the latest fashion and pick the modern designs of their choice and preference and that makes them more possessive in their approach. Teenage daughters tend to carry the family traditions in a bigger way and bring laurels to the parents. In most of the cases, they become trendsetters. But in the wake of their teenage sometime go out of our control and we pray for time to see them come out of the trying times. The interactions of the teens with their parents have changed a lot but in reality, we would like to see them making most of the situational changes that suit them in their endeavours. After all, the parents prove as a guiding force and the interactions become very soft with parents once they realise their roles and responsibilities in real life.
