You made it through the troubling times of
Middle School and now you must face the challenges
of High School. High School students are a
challenging lot. They are wanting to be full adults
but don't have the maturity and knowledge necessary
for success in this complex world. During this time
they will fill their house with new furniture as
they bring in new ideas and viewpoint that at times
can be confusing and frustrating. Be there for them,
talk to them and try to understanding the rapid
changes that will come.
1. This is the stage in
your child in which he or she has to
make decisions that will affect him
or her for the rest of their lives.
Bear inmind that what they say or do
today maybe different than what they
say or do tomorrow.
2. Be there for them for this is a time
inwhich emotions can run wild so be patient.
3. Watch for changes in friends,
patterns of behavior, clothing, hygiene and
activities, they are all outward signs in what is
going on inside their minds.
4. Set reasonable rules, restrictions
and expectations. They may complain but in reality
they thrive on understanding where their place is in
5. Don't let modern technology or social
networking dominate their lives. Give them a variety
of experiences that will enrich their experiences.
6. Work with them on the dreams and
hopes for what they are to do after graduation. Not
all students are ment to go to college. Some really
want to work with their hands and minds outside of a
college or university,.
