What makes teens happy

Adolescence is a time of change. Before entering into it, the child goes through various stages of life and emotions. Many parents may recall how they felt fear, pain, or disappointment when thinking about raising their child. But he grew up – and his parents are happy, seeing that everything is fine with him. All parents want happiness for their children. Consider how to make a teenager happy.

Happy teenager

From the age of 13 to 19, a lot changes in the lives of children. They are undergoing physiological changes, they are trying to imitate others or are looking for their own style.

Is it permissible for parents to spank a child?

Around the same time, the first scientific papers began to appear, confirming that physical punishment has negative consequences for the behavior and emotions of children. Modern research proves this thesis. Continue reading

The child wants to quit playing sports

Sooner or later, many children involved in sports think about quitting training. Sometimes this decision is a surprise for parents, but more often than not, certain signals precede it.

What reasons can push a child to quit playing sports?

In general, all the reasons most often boil down to two main ones. The first is that the child’s interests change. Most often this happens in adolescence. Studying, romantic relationships, chatting with friends and various entertainments leave the child little time for playing sports. In such circumstances, the child simply changes his priorities.

The second reason children quit playing sports is the negative experience associated with them. Continue reading
