    What is your approach with children's growing independence?

    As we all know, children now a days, to be specific teenagers, are becoming more and more independent. For example, me as a college student, I want to earn money to get the things I want. I would like to ask some of the parents here in HubPages how you approach this situations. Do you deny your children's independence and wait for a later time or you give it to them directly and let them face the world head on?
    It depends with your approach.

    I think, to a point, you just have to embrace it. As children become more and more independent, sometimes the knee jerk reaction of parents is to become more overbearing and controlling. That is the last thing someone who values independence wants. As someone who has been through it, my advice would be to embrace their independence, embrace their transition from being someone's child to being their own person. But, you should still give guidance where you see fit, and more importantly, when they ask for it.

    Children become independent as  years go  by   my choice is to allow them to be free and explore their situations of independence it is hard for a parent to see their child's growing independence but  once it is time it just has to be.

    well, we are open to our teenage daughter independence but she doesn't work for it like you do. Same as other kids around our neighborhood, teens seek for parents money to buy things that they want and prefer to hangout at internet rather than helping out around the house or look for a job. We allow her to go out with friends, do whatever she wants but she wants to stay at home and do nothing. She doesn't have any close friends either!

      I guess there are just kids like that. I do understand her, because sometimes I do the same old things, but at one time, you might want to talk to her. At our age, we really love to socialize, there might be something up with her.
