Teaching Teens To Take Responsibility

Oct 13, 2021

Ah, adolescence. It's that unclearly defined span of years that bridge childhood to adulthood. When your child is an adolescent it can be hard to find the right balance of responsibility and dependence. Here are some tips from experts that help teach our teens about responsibility without forcing them to grow up immediately:

1. If your teen is in high school, try not to micromanage them. "Instead of waking them up each morning, let them use an alarm clock," says Jamie Farnsworth Finn, writing for Today.com. 

2. Hold firm when dealing with consequences of bad behavior. If your teen is breaking house rules and isn't receiving any consequence, then your teen is learning that there isn't any reason to obey house rules. Conversely, a teen who has learned that breaking curfew results in having their phone taken away has also learned the beginning of responsibility. 

3. Set clear expectations with your teen about school attendance, homework, and grades. Earning a perfect 4.0 might not be a high priority for your family, or even a healthy one, but maybe consistently studying is. Help your teen set themselves up for success by making rules about what is and isn't acceptable at school. 

If your teen needs help to succeed in Math, consider enrolling that student at Mathnasium of Berkeley Lake. We are located at 4895 Peachtree Industrial Blvd #104, Norcross, GA 30092, next to T-Mobile near Taste of Greece. Mathnasium of Berkeley Lake has been helping teens like yours take responsibility for their own math learning for several years.

Our Director, Doreen Thi, can be reached at 770-881-8462. We've been building math skills in students from all over Berkeley Lake, Peachtree Corners, Duluth, Norcross and from schools like Wesleyan School Norcross High School.

We can't wait to help your student take responsibility of their math learning! Sign up today for a Free Assessment.
