Preteen Relationships

Even preteens have relationships that are important to them. In this critical time, though, the most important preteen relationship is always with parents. It is up to the parents to provide for them the foundations of a good relationship. For those that dare not do provide this relationship in a positive manner, well, they are simply asking for their preteen to rebel against them. There are other preteen relationships, though, that are also important to preteens.

One of these preteen relationships is the friendship ones. Whether your preteen has many or just a few close relationships with other preteens, it is essential that they have some. It is up to those parents again to provide them with opportunities to have these preteen friendships. They are the basis after all, for relationships with friends throughout their lives. Trust, angry, hurt feelings, as well as happiness, pride, and acknowledgement are founded in preteen friendship relationships.

Teachers and other adults often have good relationships with preteens. Those that have these types of relationship end up being mentors and guides to go to when your preteen gets lost. Again, it is up to the parents to ensure that these preteen relationships are on the up and up and that they are founded in trust and positive reinforcement. Relationships like these propel future relationships as well. To help your teen, learn more about this at http://www.getdatingtips.com.

There are other preteen relationships that are important as well. You can fill them in. As you see, though, these preteen relationships are guides and stepping stones into future relationships your preteen will have. These relationships are learning blocks.
