5 reasons why teenagers don’t listen !-

Font Size :

Though you talk a lot with patience to your teenage children, yet they don't seem to listen a bit. They seem to be in the world of their own.     

Here, an expert break down 5 reasons why teenagers fail to listen to parents. 

1. Because we don’t listen to them.

Teenagers will listen to anyone who listens to them. They will listen to anyone who listens to them. Do you realize how dangerous that is? But it’s true.

For that reason alone, if you want your teenager to listen to you, start by listening to him or her. Because if you don’t listen to your teenagers, their friends will. 

2. They question the source.

As parents, we’re pretty good at giving advice. Life has taught us many lessons, and we feel to pass that wisdom on to our children. Teenagers don’t believe half the stuff we’re telling them. Because, we do not practice what we preach.

If you want your teenagers to listen to you, never ask them to do anything you’re not willing to do yourself. Lead by your example, not by your explanations. 

3. They’re afraid of being judged or disappointing us.

When it comes to raising teenagers, one of the toughest things to learn when to keep your mouth shut. 

The key to your children confiding in you and listening to you is this: Never be shocked by what your teen tells you. You can’t change the outcome or undo it anyway. So instead, ask non-judgmental questions. They’ll listen to you more because you stayed calm and didn’t react the way they expected.

4. Because they’re hurting.

Teenagers who are hurting but never get healing for it can end up hurting themselves and others. Sometimes the only reason a teen refuses to listen is he or she is hurting and suffering in silence and just doesn’t know how to express it. So, if you choose to ignore your teenager’s pain, your teenager is going to choose to ignore you.

You don’t need to have an answer for your teen. You just need to be ready to give him or her a safe place to share his or her hurts with you. 

5. Because they’re afraid of becoming us.

If you really want to get your teen to listen to you, then simply become the kind of person you want your teen to become. Many teens are secretly afraid that if they do what we do, listen to what we say, and follow the path we recommend, then they eventually will end up at a destination they most want to avoid, called “boredom.” Their response: “Why listen to you?”

That’s why—to make sure your teen doesn’t tune you out—it’s important that you become the kind of person, in character and deed, who’s worth listening to.
