When it comes to raising young children, parents soon come to find that at a certain age, the extent to which they talk back and attempt to argue with parents increases significantly. When it comes to arguing with an adolescent child, there is a fine line that parents need to tread on in order to ensure effective development, while still nurturing the self-esteem of a child as they enter this volatile stage of their lives.
- Argumentativeness is normal for teenagers, who are testing their own ability to be assertive as they move forward.
- In the throes of dealing with adolescence, parents of teens can forget that arguments are not possible without their collaboration.
- It’s also important to remember that even at this late stage of childhood teenagers will imitate their primary role models, their parents.
“In frustration, particularly during early and mid-adolescence, parents will often hold the teenager responsible for this increase in argument, but such blame is misplaced.”
