Gauging from my experience, if parents of adolescents are non-judgmental, uninterrupting, patient listeners and honest critics, the latter are more likely to tell them about the problems they face. Having a peaceful and positive atmosphere at home works also works wonders. If they find peace at home, they may not tend to go into wrong friendships, to show their frustration from home. One should always remember that an adolescent wants to be heard rather than be ordered around. Youngsters should be made to believe that they are completely and unconditionally trusted by their parents. This can make them responsible adolescents and promising citizens.
