Teen Discipline: Strategies and Challenges
Discipline for Teens: Strategies and Challenges
For teenagers, discipline is about agreeing on and setting appropriate limits and helping them behave within those limits. When your child was younger, you probably used a range of discipline strategies to teach him the basics of good behaviour. Now your child is growing into a teenager, you can use limits and boundaries to help him learn independence , take responsibility for his behaviour and its outcomes, and solve problems. Your child needs these skills to become a young adult with her own standards for appropriate behaviour and respect for others. An important part of this is learning to stick to some clear rules, agreed on in advance, and with agreed consequences. Negotiation is a key part of communicating with teenagers and can help avoid problems.

So first, you need to identify the behavior you want to change. Instead of grounding or punishing , or even reasoning with your child when she gets angry and lashes out, an effective consequence here would require your child to practice better behavior — and improve her self-control — for a period of time before her normal privileges are restored.
