The desire to increase secrecy is a normal part of development. When teenagers grow older, they face significant obstacles, such as learning about what kind of person they are, where they fit, and what they want to do in life. Thus, parents should knock before entering children’s room.
They very easily grow their minds; they learn new thoughts, skills and develop new social interests. It is therefore only natural to seek more privacy and space while these things work out.
This time span can also be a major change for parents. After all, with your teen there are so many unknowns that it can often be disturbing; but it is important to remember that having more privacy doesn’t necessarily mean that your child needs to hide something.
More defense of self-information corresponds with the growth of freedom and autonomy. It can only be treated as a possible red flag when there is extreme secrecy.
By knowing the relationship between privacy and confidence, why do you generally respect the rules of children’s privacy of your teen and how to raise a safe, trustworthy and independent teen when it is necessary.
When young people obtain the privacy, they need it helps them become more self-sufficient and creates trust. As a parent, try to find a balance between knowing what your teen does, trusting that your teen has some private affairs and knowing when to join. All in all, trust your intuition.
Too little supervision can leave young people without the assistance and support they need to make safe decisions about their lives and relationships. But if you float over them and ask for so many data, you cannot trust them.
The aim is to provide parents with the resources and guidance they need as well as space and privacy to develop independence and confidence in a trustworthy climate.
