What if every time you got pulled over for a speeding ticket … the cop just let you off the hook? Or whenever you missed a credit card payment … they never charged you any late fees?
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.
Now, that might sound like a dream come true to you. But the fact is … rules and consequences become completely ineffective unless they’re carried out!
So if you’re trying to curb your teen’s misbehavior, start by laying down some boundaries. Then, the next time he crosses the line … be a man or woman of your word … and follow through!
Will your teen test you? Absolutely. So be prepared to stand your ground. He may grumble and complain now … but one day, he will thank you.
