Parenting: 5 basic skills

Adolescence is the time when big changes occur with a child. He is no longer small, but also not an adult. When raising a teenager, parents should adjust their skills and make them more effective.

Adolescent development

Consider the areas in which adolescents are changing:

Make communication with children your priority.
