Your teen’s vocabulary has increased - but for the worse. Once you know why they choose to curse, you can help them choose more wholesome ways to express themselves.
Every parent wants to avoid teenage rebellion if at all possible, and for good reason. Who really wants to see their kids make bad choices and get themselves into trouble? But what parents need to understand is that teens rebel in both healthy and unhealthy ways. So how can parents recognize the difference?
Often, a child will take advantage of you in any way he can to get to do what he wants. Just when you think you’ve told him what is expected, he comes back with statements like: “I forgot.” “I didn’t hear you.” “You didn’t say that.” You need to have a strategy, both for your sanity and for their character development.
