If you have a disrespectful teenager, don’t give up!
If you are having a conversation (argument) with your adolescent and frustrated about the way the conversation is going, or if you do not want to allow the conversation to escalate into an argument, then you have to learn that it is ok to walk away.
For example, your adolescent may break curfew or get poor grades.
Saying that they're grounded for a month (or longer) is not going to work. One of the most important aspects of an adolescent's life is being part of the social scene; going out with their friends and not feeling like they've missed anything.
Want a more modern punishment that will really work? While it's perfectly normal to worry, you should also remember that your adolescent is a person to, with a life of their own.
Because it's never a good thing to be known as the "crazy" mom or dad who calls everyone in their phone book at 4 AM looking for their son/daughter, it's a good idea to set up some basic rules to avoid this situation.
If your disrespectful adolescent is attempting to engage you in an argument or trying to get his or her way on something, firmly and quietly repeat your decision, then let them know you will not continue the conversation, and walk away.
