I need someone that is great with parenting, with a lot of knowledge in the area, especially teenagers. Then great! I need your help!
I need someone with passion in the area of parenting and how to deal with conflicts around teenagers, to write a guide about strategies to work in different situations. This is going to be a guide for new carers and foster parents, where they will take over the custody of a teenager into their care.
We are a small business that helps and support foster carers and we focus on teenagers. We need you to create a guide with practical advice that works. I want someone with the 'hands-on' experience, that knows what works in the real world and not being too theoretical. You don't need a fancy title, just experience with what works.
I want practical ways of setting boundaries, and how to respond to different situations. I'm happy for you to be flexible with the questions and situations below, if you can come up with other situation or alter situations below to fit into a real-world situation, then that's fine.
I'm using Peter is an example, he is 15 years old and showing some challenging behaviours. We are going to use the WIFI as a leverage for good behaviour/compliance. For example, Peter is not cleaning his room, you don't put the WiFi on until it's done. Can you think about other leverages for compliance (which not involves getting money for compliance)? Any punishment must be humane and not be 'too harsh', but it needs to be enough to teach them a lesson. If you can argue for using other strategies than punishment than that is welcome as well, but some situations might need some form of punishment when other options are exhausted.
1. Peter is pushing boundaries and you need to set down boundaries,
1a: Where do you begin? What situation can you expect to arise and how you deal with each of them?
1b: How do remain consistent with your enforcement of rules?
1c: What type of 'punishment' could you use that would be fair and effective to use?
2. Peter is using rude language and call you names
2a: How should you react? What should you react and what should you say?
2b: What practical strategies would you implement and why?
3. Peter is avoiding doing his chores and tend to hide in his room
1a: How should you approach him to do his chores?
3b What practical strategies would you implement and why?
4. You got a 'home office' in your home and this is off limits for Peter. He tries to go in and you need to stop him.
4a: What strategies would you implement and why?
5. Peter is having an innocent pillow fight a sibling in the house and it turns into being too rough/loud/aggressive and you need to stop it before it goes out of hands.
5a: What practical strategies would you implement and why?
6. Peter is saying your name in a silly voice, which you find is derogatory and like he is making fun of you.
6a: What practical strategies would you implement and why?
7. Peter doesn't cook, he only eats leftovers left in the fridge. You want him to start to cook for himself when you don't cook, then he will just eat cereal and snacks instead of proper food.
7a: What practical strategies would you implement and why?
8. General questions
8a. Practical advice to being consistent?
8b. How to be assertive, especially in unfamiliar situations
8c. How to let your teenager know that you are serious, what should you do? How can you remain calm, assertive and firm and the same time?
9. What advice would you give to a parent which struggle to be assertive and being 'a people pleaser' and struggle to stand up for themselves? It's easy for their teenagers to 'walk all over them'. I want you to focus on these personalities where assertiveness doesn't come naturally. To come up with practical strategies for this.
Thank you :)
