4 Tips On Improving Relationship With Your Teenage Daughter
The dress she wears, the kind of music she listens to, the guy she hangs out with, and many more things that your teenage daughter does. Do all of these things give you a nightmare? Well, you are one of those moms who still see their daughters as little children and not friends. The life of a teenage girl is hard and very unique. A lot of issues that creep up everyday make her life challenging. At this point, instead of being friendly to your daughter, constantly scolding her or disapproving of her ways and means will just ruin her precious teenage years. It is important to understand her as a friend and develop that friendly relationship which enhances your mother-daughter relationship.
1. Empathize with her
Put yourself in her shoes. You were a teen once. You had your own issues and there is no doubt you were equally revolting by nature during your teen years. With this in mind, the relationship between you and daughter will head for a better one.
2. Lend a ear
Listen to what she has to say with full attention and do respond carefully, with the right words. Your daughter will be looking up to you for the answers. Set a good example for her to follow and learn. Communication is very important here. Observe and learn her style of communication, this will help communicate and relate better.
