The most well-known stereotype for teenagers is their tendency to rebel against their parents. Adults have been trying to figure out this problem for many, many years, and still cannot seem to keep teens from pushing their limits. “The reason why parents usually dislike adolescent rebellion is that it creates more resistance to their job of providing structure, guidance, and supervision…” (Pickhardt). Parents have that structure because they want to keep their children safe, but adolescent kids continue to defy their parent’s rules, and ignore their guidance, making they’re job harder. The reasoning behind all of that lies only in the minds of teenagers.

Barriers between Parents and Teens Ibrahim Bin Hafiz Dubai International School May 16, 2016 Abstract My research will contain how a parent can have a better way to communicate with a teen.
