What Parents Should Be Doing If Their Teen Seems Sexually Active Or Frustrated?

A Two Way Guide for the Parents.

Various reasons come out as to why todays teens seem sexually active or frustrated these days.

  • Problems having in control of their sex drive (Being teens there is always a high probability of failing to Sexual Urges)
  • Controlling their emotions

( Over the years, teens are exposed to the media over the internet and the Tv from a very tender age

They try to intimate anything they see. They tend to find themselves about who they are and what they are.)

  • Listening to friends from School or College

(Survey Listings suggest teens who are sexually active or are involved in any outrageous behavior happen to have a lot of friends. Though it is not bad to have friends but in most circumstances it is evident that friends tend to play a major role. It is upto them if they are willing to learn a lesson from their mistakes and by listening to their elders.)

  • Not having an Understanding parent

This might be very critical for your teen as they don't have a place to share their thoughts and ideas about the opposite sexuality. Nowadays they tend to be more mature than previous times. Learning something new from somebody someday puts an obvious question in a teenagers mind." I should be trying this out myself no matter what"

Trying something out for themselves is not a bad thing as long they have the potential to understand what the consequences might be.

( They have various logic about judging things that are around them and that is why after reaching a certain age when a teenager tends to talk differently that is the time for the parents to be free with them.)

WHAT PARENTS SHOULD BE DOING?

  • Building a trust between you and your child is very necessary. You should be supporting them with anything constructive they feel doing. If you think what they are doing is wrong and might effect in the long run give them some hints or some real life experiences as to how your relatives child was mislead and the problems they are facing. Mostly at this age teenagers seem to be cut out from the world outside them about the world is naive about some aspects and what the terrific consequences are if something goes wrong and how everyone reacts to it.(Building your trust between you and your child takes a long time)

How do you build a trust between you and your child?

This can only be accomplished by an understanding parent and a parent who has build their trust with their children.

Talk to them as if they are your friends . Talk to them about your past and talk about things that you would speak about only when you are around your special friend.(at the end of the day your children are the only friend you have left. Spend some time talking talking to them. Even if you are tired after your days work try to spend atleast 10-15 minutes with your children. asking them about their school or college and by sharing your work experience in return.) Try to make this a daily habit.

This would make your children talk about their own problems and if you feel something wrong you should immediately alert them about the consequences in a friendly way. This will make your child learn and understand better.

Using these techniques will surely help You and Your Child to overcome the most important years in life.

I hope that my writing does help you.

Sex is a very tricky topic. I know far too many girls who get pregnant as early as 14... I find that popular culture is largely to blame.

I wish I got laid back then to be honest. But I think education is the answer since it`s going to happen no matter what.

Yes I think a lot of it is down to individual intelligence too. Too bad that teens rarely have the insight to start thinking things through. Critical thinking isn`t emphasized enough in the public schooling system IMO. I do have some insight about where things go wrong. It usually is a result of bad parenting. By "bad" i mean neglectful parents that do the bare minimum and don`t take part in their child`s lives. These kids, especially girls, grow into messed up teens and end up making a long line of stupid decisions either for attention or for the love and "family" that they weren`t getting at home.

Either way i always emphasize on what you called Individual intelligence. As a matter of fact i find it hard to understand why teenagers behave like this even if they are neglected at home But parenting does matter. and of-course these days the media has gone so open that virtually it is possible to learn anything from the Internet.

What I mean is that teens have a fragile sense of self to begin with(we`ve all been through it). Having no role models or strong family influences leaves them even more unstable. Throw the media into this and you get the perfect storm.
