Things your sister really wants to hear

Siblings share the same parents, home and childhood. Therefore, share plenty of memories, dreams, and aspirations too.

Our siblings are the first friends we make and first enemies too. In this love-hate kind of relationship, we often forget that like any other relationship, this one also needs much care and attention. Especially sisters, no matter they admit it or not, want their brother to be there with them no matter what and understand them in every situation. If you have a sister, you might be aware of her craziness, her tantrums, her mood swings and all. But above all, you should be aware that she needs you. She wants your love and support.

Here are a few things that she really wants to hear and which you should be expressing to her to make her Rakhi special.

You might not realize it, a good brother can make all the difference in a girl’s life.

“I am valued”

For every brother out there, your sister wants to know that she means a lot to you. If you haven’t told this to her before make sure to express how thankful you are to have her as a sister.

“I am lovely”

You may have told your sister that she isn’t pretty, looks like a pumpkin, has a huge nose, etc. And your relationship isn’t complete if you haven’t done so. However, tell that she is pretty not just physically but she is a really lovely person and she brings beauty in your life.

“I am smart”

Your sister and you may not always be on the same note and may not see things the same way but you should make her realize how much you appreciate her thoughts and values. How you admire her ideas and morals.

“I am protected”

This one doesn’t even need any explanation. it is obvious that every sister wants to feel protected and that you can do all to look after her.

“I am gifted”

Make her feel that she is one talented lady and you admire her strengths. You believe in her and she will do great things in life ahead.

“I am loved”

You guys might be Tom & Jerry all the time but she needs your love too. Tell her that you love her and will continue to do so for the rest of your life.

Tell her that “you love her”.

A Teen’s guide to dealing with difficult parents

Parents can be difficult to deal with at times, especially for teens.

Almost every other teen complain about having a difficult time dealing with their parents. However, the truth is some only see the superficial face of the situation without realizing that parents are actually people who support us. It cannot be denied, though, that there are parents who are actually a challenge to their kids. Nonetheless, negotiations are important in all relationships.

Here are a few tips for a better adjustment with your parents:

Don’t try to change the world

Although you may believe that many changes need to be brought about around you, it would still be a good idea to start with the small changes. You might be surprised that the small changes are all that is required to feel comfortable with parents.

Be polite

Being rude or disrespectful towards your parents is not a good way of negotiating with your parents. Show your willingness for a mature dialogue by speaking courteously.

Understand your own feelings

It will be useful to open a dialogue to discuss with your parents about the ways you irritate each other. Remember, you can be as irritating to them as they may be to you. The key is to respect their views that will help you to be prepared to give and take.

Be a good listener

Most of the time feelings overtake us so strongly that we blank out on listening. You may not agree with everything that your parents may have to suggest but that does not mean that it is worthless to listen to everything that they have to say.

Work out the solutions

Try to be a part of the solution rather than a problem. It is not useful to adopt the strategy of ‘no talk’ with parents. Suggest solutions when conflicts arise and keep the dialogue intact.

Discover what your parents fear about

If you consider closely, most the time the primary reason behind your parents' anger is some sort of fear they have for you. Try to find out their fears and push them to go further and explain it to you.

Be positive

Many reactions that teens display come out as complaints. It is important to explain how you feel rather than complaining. You can express your preferences as a request.

Showing responsibility and respect towards your parents makes your parents happy that you are turning into a great adult. It makes them know you are doing a great job.
