Osuchukwu mirrors teenagehood in new book
There is usually a gap in communication between teenage children and their parents, which often times, results in a misunderstanding that drives a wedge into the relationship somehow.
The book, 32 Secrets Teens Wish their Parents Knew, From A Teenager’s Perspective is written to correct the misunderstanding between parents and their teenage children.
In the light of that, the real reason for this book is to help address the parent-teen relationship.
This book is conceived to give you a richer and deeper understanding of the teenager’s thought processes and how to understand and better relate to your teenage children as parents.
According to the author, “as the first born of my parents, a lot of responsibilities are passed down to me by culture and as a teenage. I tend to feel bewildered and reluctant sometimes, and my parents may not see things the way I see them, which is no fault of theirs, at all. My intention is not to criticise the parents but to reach out to them and make clarifications,”
She said. “We know that our parents love us, at the same time, it is crucial for them to understand that the teenage phase is a complicated one, in view of the fact that we go through lots of transitioning. As such, we dearly would love our parents to understand our points of view as teenagers.”
What is more, the revelations in this book would help parents gain fascinating insights into the teenager’s perspective of things, and how to approach the teenager in a way that is deemed fair.
In doing so, this book will put the voices, feelings, and opinions of teenagers before the parents to make the bond and love stronger.
“Although, it is widely assumed that the age that we are in (digital age) is one that commands a significant influence on teenage boys and girls, notwithstanding, there is no gainsaying that parents have the greatest influence on their children,” said the Osuchukwu.
I hope that the relationship between teenagers and their parents would be improved upon after reading and digesting the information in this book. On this score,
I recommend that you read this book with an open mind.
