Disciplining teenagers is a whole other beast than disciplining children. Teenagers are more than hormonal misfits, and it sometimes takes a delicate hand to figure what type of discipline works for each teenager. Unlike children, teenagers can comprehend the difference between right and wrong on an intellectual level. In fact, during the teenage years, teens figure out that the only reason there are starving people in the world is because of money. To them, that is a superficial reason to keep someone from eating. There is a certain level of idealism that comes into play when you are dealing with teens. TABLE OF CONTENTSIntroductionWhat is your teenager acting out?Here are a few examples of acting out.1.
