However, there are some that will remain consistent throughout your child's adolescence.
I, myself, find it hard to deal with parents of my teen's friends when I know that they have a habit of lying for their own teenager. They can expect all members of the family to take part in family traditions, family vacations, family meetings, and other activities that build strong family bonds.
What is to keep them from lying to me about mine if they feel it will help my teen 'stay out of trouble'? Knowing how that makes other parents feel is the reason why I am always honest when the parents of my teen's friends ask questions. Parents have the right to monitor their children's access to the outside world.
No one is perfect and the decision you made may not be the best when you look back on it. While your teen may not appreciate your reversal right away, your willingness to apologize and correct a mistake is a good to model for them.
Parents have the right to let their teen know they love and care about them.
Parents have the right to make mistakes and change their minds.
Mistakes happen, learning to fix a mistake and apologizing is important.Parents have the right to set rules and limit privileges when rules are not followed.This includes house and family rules that are followed out of respect for everyone who lives in the home.While teens are given the ultimate choice of what they want to do with their future lives, parents can influence it by using encouraging methods, but not through discipline.For example, encourage your teen to like science by sending them to space camp, but don't take away privileges because they didn't read the book on the solar system that you gave them.Some examples are rules about chores, guests, curfews, and illegal substances or activities within the home.
