The average school age is a very curious period of the child's growing up, which barely had time to move to the stage of a teenager. In children of this age, there are certain characteristics of growing up. And sometimes parents just do not know what to do about it. The fact that there is a middle-aged psychology that can significantly help parents cope with the difficulties of the adolescent period of their children.
Average age in adolescents
The average age is a transition from childhood to adolescence. This time often falls on children from 12 to 15 years old and can give teenagers awkward feelings with the usual restructuring of the whole body, both physically and morally. Many parents know that, in the very first place, the middle age implies adolescent puberty . And the girls this period comes a little earlier than boys. At this moment, there can be a change in the teenager's peace of mind, his behavior, his communication with peers of the opposite sex is changing.
Some features of growing up
Of course, during this period, criticality is a special feature of adolescents. They have their own opinion, which very often does not agree with the opinion of adults. Criticality, which is very pronounced, may eventually turn into an inability to adapt to the surrounding opinion. Therefore, a teenager will invariably be out of society, since the society is always unpleasant when criticized. Parents in the eyes of a teenager simply lose their credibility, and this must be remembered. If in due time the small child constantly followed parents and in all with them agreed, now a little in another way. Undoubtedly, if at a younger age it was enough to lay certain guidelines on the authority of parents, then the average age presupposes some loss of it.
Tips for parents
Parents need to take into account that in their average age a teenager becomes not only critical, but also imitative. It is for this reason that he easily copies the behavior of his peers. Therefore, keep a close eye on those around you that are close to your child. Since your credibility is slightly weakened, the manner of copying peers can lead to the fact that a teenager will simply fall into a bad company. During this period, your child can sometimes incorrectly express their emotions and feelings, which should not be frightened. The prerequisites and signs of such behavior are:
- outbursts of anger;
- withdrawal into oneself;
- Obsessions of leadership;
- an aggressive and pronounced sense of protest;
- an unjustified sense of self-sufficiency.
Parents, always remember that, no matter how your child during this period of his growing up is either capricious or furious, no matter how illogically and inadequately he acts, these are absolutely normal manifestations for the period of secondary school age. It is not necessary to order anything, to impose their convictions on the adolescent, to put ultimatums. In such situations, you most likely should be a gray cardinal who will guide your child in the right and the right direction.
