Parenting High Achievers: Is Your Child Working Too Hard? High Teen Achievers

Parents of high achievers have everything to be thankful for. Your kids are home studying when other kids are out cruising around causing problems. So, why do you feel so worried?

Although it might seem like driven teens have it all together, that isn’t necessarily the case. A study from Arizona State University found that people who achieve greatness as teenagers are at high risk for substance abuse throughout early adulthood.

Parenting Teens who are High Achievers

If you want to avoid teen issues, you’ll need to help your teen find balance. Being driven is an excellent quality to have, but the downside is that driven teens may fail to schedule enough time for rest and relaxation.

1. Check Yourself

Teens who work hard to achieve everything they possibly can often have parents who push them to do so. There isn’t anything wrong with encouraging your kids to do their best, but you don’t want to put too much pressure on them. Make sure you’re coming off like a leader, not a dictator.

2. Allow for Failures

Your kids need to know that it’s okay to fail. Teen issues begin to arise when kids are too hard on themselves. If your teen receives a disappointing grade or a disciplinary action for bad behavior, try to use the situation for good. Talk with your teen about what went wrong and how to make better choices next time, but don’t make it seem like a single mistake is the end of the world.

3. Encourage Fun

Study is important, but so is time for friends and family. Make sure your teen knows it’s okay to go out for the evening to have some fun. Likewise, it’s okay to relax and unwind on the weekends. Explain that many of the world’s most successful individuals carve out time for meditation, rest, and other activities that encourage wellness.
