Yet, just as important as it is to set limits, it’s absolutely crucial that parents find more ways to say yes to their teen than to say no. A good rule of thumb would be to provide one opportunity for each time you say no.
For example, every time you say no to their requests for more stuff, provide your teenager a chance to spend time with you, or experiences where they can grow. In other words, give them the gift of your time and life experiences where they can make memories or learn new skills. Parents, they probably don’t need more junk, but they can always use more of you. Say yes to those request as much as you have to say no to the other things, and you’ll have a happier, healthier teenager.
Take Away: Teenager need their parents more than their parent’s money.
