It seems like yesterday that your children approached you, your father, with any questions and listened with open ears. But today they have a personal opinion on everything, which makes them both happy because their son is growing up, but also sad because it happened so quickly.
They also leave you wondering if you’ve had enough time to teach them everything and wondering if they’re ready for adulthood.
We are sure that it is never too late to give good advice. But there are things that need to be discussed with children in adolescence, and we tried to collect these recommendations in this article.
What Kind Of Advice Parents Tend To Give
Be Able To Admit Your Mistakes
Anyone can make a mistake, be it in school, at work, or even in personal life. Trust us, if you say you made a mistake, many people will want to help you correct it.

Don’t Drive Yourself Into Stereotypes
Don’t reject things you like just because someone says girls or boys shouldn’t behave that way. The ancient Vikings knitted socks and that didn’t stop them from being brutal guys.
