Adolescence is quintessentially characterized by change involving transformations in almost every functioning domain, be it physical or mental. During these periods of transformation, to scaffold children to the next-level, parental support is very critical. The problem arises where children tend to move towards autonomy while parents struggle to strike a balance as with the advent of adolescence, children’s time spent with parents get reduced and the peer relationships are more pronounced. This may be the cause why the society views parent – adolescent relationship as not important. The general view in this case is that as children enter adolescence the amount of influence that parents hold on them decreases significantly along with the decrease in time spent. And as adolescents spend a large amount of their time in schools with their tutors, friends or the peer groups, these people are believed to have a hold on their behaviors. Also, the puberty phase leads to an increase in dispute between parents and adolescents. Nevertheless, while the above case may be true, it doesn’t overly affect parental influence with good parenting practices. The common conflicts between the two also are minor issues and they generally tend to be agreeable when it comes to major issues.
