    Thank you Faith Reaper and that's a very sound advice you shared. Parents must listen to the teenage kids and perhaps this is the age when they need emotional support of their parents even more. We must be sensitive to their behaviour and help them.

    Thank manatita, for sharing your opinion! I agree that there is lot of peer pressure and society's influence. This is the time they start discovering themselves from their point of view and have an individual opinion that may be different from us.

    Thank you, Andrew!

    You summed it up so beautifully! The favourite line of the teenage kids may be, 'Please Ma, I am not a small kid---I am grown up now!'

    And now I want to repeat your last line, Ah! What a relief when the teen years are all over.

    Thank you Katrina, for your detailed answer! I must applaud you for the great responsible work you are doing at present. Parenting indeed needs lot of patience and hard work. My children are grown up now in their late 20's but I remember my days.

    Thank you Norine Williams, for your valuable opinion!

    I agree with you that spending quality time with the kids during their growing up years is very important. Few years of sincere parenting can make them good human beings. Thanks!

    Thanks LupitaRonquillo!

    Your stage of parenting is the most enjoyable and that I speak through my experience. Parents may be busy and on their toes physically but you would miss these times when the kids grow up. Parenting is blissful at any stage

    Thank you Naresh4u, for your response to the question!

    You are right that teenage is perhaps the most challenging stage of parents, because this is the transition stage, that is from small kids they mature into grown up individuals.

    Thank you!
