A Guide For Parents With Kids That Are Too Obsessed With Being Cool/ Popular

Being a parent involves a lot of hard work, dedication, and patience. This is especially true for parents that are watching their children grow so quickly. As our children grow older, they can’t help but be conscious on what other people and kids think about them. Believe it or not, being “cool” is very important for our kids during this particular phase. Suddenly, they feel embarrassed when seen with us. They want to maintain an independent and cool image in front of their peers. They do all of these for the popularity they get in school.

If you notice the same dilemma with your kids, you have to understand that being a kid is tough. In this article, allow me to share with you some tips that you may use as your guide when your kids become too obsessed with being cool.

1. You have to understand that this is normal.

This may seem a little bit odd at first but the best solution to this dilemma is to let our kids be. As an adult you are very aware of the fact that being popular and being cool is not important in life. But you have to understand that your kids are not yet matured thinkers. Back in the days when we were kids, it is likely that we think the same way they do.

It will benefit you and your kid a a lot if you just stay calm and let him be as he deals with this tough part of his life. If you have the budget for it, treat your kid and get him the things he is desperate for. However, it is never a smart decision to break the bank just for your kid to fit in and be popular. For as long as your child does not disrespect you and demand you to buy the things he needs to be popular in school, you should not panic because this is just a normal phase in hiss life.

2. Tell them what really matters.

If you decided to let your kid be but he is going too far and is starting to lose perspective, you now have to remind him of the things that are really important. Do not discourage them, instead, tell them that it is their attitude and actions that will make them popular and accepted. Remind them that being kind and friendly is the key to being cool and it is not the clothes or things they have.

3. You have to communicate with your children.

Communicating with our kids can solve most if not all of the problems we have on them. Tell them that they are very fortunate compared to other kids in the globe, that they are lucky to have a good family that loves them and gives them food and shelter everyday. Communicate well with your kid so he does not resent you by not giving him what he likes.
