To Your Teen Just Got Easier|
A girls life today is filled with issues and challenges. She often tries to
wade through it with the help of her friends. These may offer her time, a
listening ear and a lot of understanding. But you offer her wisdom,
experience and the love she desparately needs even if she doesn't admit it.
Continue to give her what is needed but vary your approach. Set the mood
for your mother/daughter or Father/daughter talk. A gift along with an
invitation to a date will give her time to think about what she wants
to say, how to say it and when.
Your talk might work best after the dinner is eaten and a warm cup of
coffee, tea and desert is served. By this time they' re ready to relax and
have a laugh. Use this time to open up yourself to her. Children like to
know what makes their parent tick. Start telling funny stories about your
life at her age. The wonderful moments and the issues and challenges you
faced. Try to remember to communicate the fact that you were imperfect and
at times felt awkward.
Don't expect her to open up all at once. Avoid looking shocked or
defensive. Just listen. There will be time to respond in creative ways
later. Tell her you love her and are confidence she will make the
right decisions everyone in her life can live with.
Now at the end of the day give her a card that will say what you really
want to say in the most positive gentle loving way. Let her know you love
her. Tell her how proud you are of her. Let her know you will always be
there to help and guide her as best you can.
Gifts are a great way to break the ice. Girls love gift baskets filled with her
favorite candies and fruit, teas, coffees or soaps and body lotions are a sure hit. A
night out with their mother complete with dinner at her favorite place.
Other gift ideas include gift certificates for a day of pampering at a local
spa, or arrange for a makeover, manicure or pedicure. Scented aromatherapy
candles or a fragrant gift pack. Give her an elegant but simple piece of
jewelry: a silver bracelet, pendant or a stylish blouse pin.
Thanks for your support.
