Setting Limits and Boundaries
- Express your expectations for his or her goals and accomplishments.
- Your preteen deserves guidance, high but realistic expectations for achievement, and a fair balance between rules and freedom.
- Monitor your preteen’s behavior-what he or she says and does, where he or she goes and with whom, and when to expect him or her home.
- Establish limits and boundaries, such as curfews, study hours, behavior at parties, and expectations for special occasions.
While preteens may fight with parents about some decisions, they usually realize that the limits placed on them are a sign of love, rather than control.
