Spending quality time with your little ones is not something you should do only when it’s convenient. As children get older parents often have to double their effort to support their children’s increasing needs. Unfortunately, these efforts can result in the opposite of what’s intended. It’s every parent’s nightmare. Pressure from the need to adapt to a bigger world may be overwhelming for many children. On the other hand if you let the kids just ‘get on with it’ they may take this lack of attention as negligence of their value, which fuels insecurity and frustrations; the formula for a rebellious adolescence.
To lessen the chances of rebellious children, kids should get adequate guidance as early as possible. If you can’t communicate with your kids regularly because of work demands, then at least reserve time for a vacation so your family can unwind. Experts suggest taking them to new environments so they can be adventurous.
