There are many different views on how to parent a teenager, we won’t get it right every time. Many parents experience conflict with their teenagers as they become young adults for example arguing, shouting, swearing or aggressive behaviour. Disagreements between siblings can be a major problem for families. This can be upsetting and lead to conflict between parents and teenagers. Teenagers friendships can influence how they speak and behave at home..
