"Results of interviews with teens and parents give us a lot of hope. The teen years are good years and teens are good people." A 20-page handbook called "Thriving with Your Teen" can help parents and other caring adults develop positive relationships, with teens. It gives 10 ideas: 1. Love them no matter what and let them know it. Teens need to know that you are someone who always loves them -- even if you don't love their behavior. 2. When teens mess up, teach them how to do better next time. Instead of losing your cool, take a deep breath and use the incident to help your teen learn something. 3. Tell teens what's good about them and tell them often. 4. Show respect. Teens and adults who show respect to one another will spend more time working together and less time struggling with each other 5. Build trust. Oneof the hardest and most important things for parents to do is to recognize the increasing independence of teens, but know they still need you. 6. Listen. When teens say "I want to tell you something," give them your undivided attention and wait until they finish before you respond. 7. Help teens belong. Those who know they have a community of friends, teachers, parents, family and other caring adults have more fun and Success. 8. You don't have to do it alone. Talk with friends, family and other parents to get support for the everyday stuff. And talk with professionals such as counselors, health care providers and clergy to problem-solve tough situations 9. Don't give up when the going gets tough. This is a tough, important job and it takes time to build solid relationships with teens. 10. Teach joy. Every teen deserves to be included, encouraged and to look forward to a good day. The handbook is the result of interviews with teenagers and parents to learn what they would like each other to understand, know and do. It- was written by the Initiative for Violence-Free Families and Communities in Ramsey County.
