try to defend their child from bad habits like smoking, drug
use, or alcohol drinking.
It is an important fact that more than 60% of teenagers scared
to disappoint their parents or be unable to find the respect
of family members if they use drugs, alcohol, or even tobacco.
Here we are present a few advices how you can obtain some
control of your teen’s activities. Even if you kids don’t
like it, it’s not harassment, its process of parenting.
1. Set up rules in your family. Make tobacco smoking, illegal
drugs and alcohol drinking unacceptable for your entire family.
Try to demonstrate healthy lifestyle your selves.
2. Congratulate and reward achievements with good activities
and actions like sports, school tests, hobby. At another hand
don’t forget to enforce punishment for cases of bad behavior.

doing for the period of non-controlled time. According to
statistics teens without supervision are three times more
likely to use drugs or alcohol or been engage in risky behaviors
such as beer or wine drinking, sexual contacts, and tobacco
4. Talk to your teen. In travel, shopping or even riding in
the car, regularly ask him about school, his friends, and
his plans for the weekend or more.

p.m. and into the evening time. Enroll your teen in any activities
after the school time. Let your child will participate in
any supervised learning course or a sports association.
6. Check on your teenager. Sporadically verify that your children’s
really are where they say they’re going to be and that they
are spend time with person that they say they are with. Some
times if you have important reasons to suspect, you can even

a time when teens are pressured daily by external influencers
on issues like drugs, sex, violence, or vandalism.

try to be implicated in your child’s lives. Make a sincere
connection with your child.
