Adolescent don’t know much about relationship or sexual activity, drugs and alcohol. It’s not fair, when they make mistakes like getting pregnant, or drug addiction. You blame them so much that really often some of them kill the baby or some leave the household, some left on their own because of the parent’s shame.
It is the time when you as a parent are friends with your children. Don’t be afraid to talk to them about the danger of drugs, sex, relationship because that’s one of the main cause they go outside without knowing and get pregnant, get addicted. Teach them about abstinence, teach them what it’s like relationship in the outside world. Prevent them from doing regrettable mistake. Sometimes you may trust your child and let them do what they want, but even at 11 years old your child can be sexually active or drug themselves. They won’t ever tell you what they did if you’re being just a parent with them.
A parent need to be their child’s best friend. Your child is not only sexually active at a young age, they may be alcoholic or smokers. They think nothing bad can happen to them. They’re vulnerable and it is your job as a parent to teach them about life. They get a lot of pression in the outside world, they get influenced by their environment easily. They need help to keep up their worth. When your child is 16 or 18 that doesn’t mean you have to give them full freedom. If you failed to teach them what they need to know the next generation will be worse.
