Also, why is it important that parents talk to their children about social issues such as divorce, finances, and unemployment? How can parents talk about difficult topics? When teenagers become parents, what are some of the challenges they face? What are at least three techniques that parents can use when they are communicating with a child about a mistake or misbehavior?
Communication a person's ability to openly and clearly express themselves toward other people. Communication is mainly used to pass down information and to explain certain needs or wants. This is connected to parenting in two main ways. 1. By allowing both parents to figure out how they want to raise the child. 2. The parents of the child use communication in order to teach the child. Financial issues can take a big toll on parenting. If the parents constantly need to work in order to support their family than the child is left with little parental bonding. It may make the child feel detached from the family or resentful toward the parents. If the family makes little money than the child could be physically effected if he/she doesn't get the nutrition they need. Positive communication is a person's ability to clearly express themselves to another person without intimidating the other or appearing too timid. These people are able to compromise and explain their thoughts and reasons for their actions. Negative communication occurs when a person is unable to express their thought process. These people are either too shy to express themselves or they may appear to be haughty and disrespectful to the person they are communicating with. Divorce mainly affects children in psychological ways. The most common effect is that children often blame themselves for the divorce which can led to depression in some cases. Other children resent their parents for the divorce and lash out in anger. Another affect of divorce on children is trust issues. If one parent goes away than younger children may belief that other people in their life could also easily "walk out" on them. Tips For Parents 1. Keep in mind the child's point of view and age when speaking to them. Young children shouldn't be expected to think like adults and older children shouldn't be treated like infants. 2. Be respectful and don't lose your temper. It often takes children a while to understand certain concepts. 3. Let the child know that you are only looking out for their best interests.
Part of growing up is understanding what is happening around us. It is important to discuss social issues to children because it is something that they will confront at some point or another. Divorce is an important concept to understand. Children need to understand that "traditional" families are no longer social norm. They need to learn that other children may not have both parents at home or they may live with step-parents. It is also important for children to learn that if divorce should ever occur in the family they would still be loved by both parents. Finances-Learning about financial situations allows children to learn that they can't always get what they want. Parents can teach children how to spend money wisely and how to save for things they really want. Children can learn from an early age how to be responsible with their pocket money so they comprehend it better as adults. Unemployment-There may come a time where one parent is unemployed. It may make some children anxious if they do not have a good understanding of unemployment. They may fear that the family is in danger or that something will happen to them. It is important to discuss it with children so they know how the family is doing and how they can help. When discussing these issues, parents should be patient with their children. Kids are naturally curious and will probably have many questions to these topics. Parents should plan what they will talk about and how they will explain before discussing it with their child. They should also take into consideration any possible questions their children may have so it isn't too difficult coming up with an answer later on. Problems Teenage Parents Face: 1. Finances-If it is an unplanned pregnancy then the parents may not have the economic means to completely support themselves. Another issue that may be faced is that the parents may have a hard time finding jobs if they are minors. 2. Education-One or both of the parents may no longer want to attend school. Dropping out would reduce their employment options and limit job searches. 3. Health-Risks may be involved if the mother is too young. 4. Single Parenting-Only one parent is able to take care of the child. This means there is less money for the family and the single parent has more stress. 5. Discrimination-Because of the stigma placed on teen parents many may have a difficult time finding work or getting aid from family members. Depending on where the parents live there may also be social isolation. Communication and Discipline Same as the three in the previous post I made.
