Ms. Al-Nasyan: Teenager Participation is Necessary to End Negative Behaviors
08 September 2013
Ms. Fadilah Abdulrahman al-Nasyan, the manageress of the Model Education Schools, highlighted that the proper guidance of teenager behavior must be conducted in participation of the teenager himself in order to end his negative behavior and reinforce his positive behavior successfully.
 
“The participation of the teenager will make him accept the change process,” said al-Nasyan, adding that the teenager is like the express train which destroys anything on its way, so the guidance process must be conducted properly.
 
In response to the ways of improving the teenagers' performance during the academic year, and dealing with the children addiction to the internet, Mrs. al-Nasyan stressed that the low performance of students can be attributed to their desire to do well with their study; because of the high expectations imposed upon them. So the student does his best to get high marks in order to satisfy his parents. This matter, in fact, imposes pressure on the student.
 
On the other hand, the student believes that there will be neither pressure nor high expectations if his performance is bad.
 
Proceeding from this misconception, the parents should examine this problem and find solutions for it in participation of the teenager himself. Also, more solutions must be put forward for the teenager to choose from.
 
Mrs. al-Nasyan added that one of the factors that prevent students from doing well with their study is the difficulty of some materials, so the parents must support their sons and explain the material in a simplified manner using varied teaching ways.
 
As a part of the activities of the health awareness program (My health ... My school) coinciding with the start of the new academic year, the Ministry of Health (MOH), in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, hosted Mrs. Fadilah Abdulrahman al-Nasyan, the manageress of the Model Education Schools, through the Media and Health Awareness Information Center's toll-free line: 800-2494444 and the MOH's account on Twitter: @saudimoh; in order to talk about importance and ways of dealing with teenagers.
 
Talking about the most prominent tips to deal with the behavior of teenager as well as his psychological and temperamental changes, Mr. al-Nasyan pointed out that:
  • First, the parents must abide by the manners of dialogue while talking with the teenager. This step will make the teenager feel self-confidence, become more quiet, have the ability to think logically, increase his capability in solving problems and making decisions, allay his stubbornness and rebellion, bring the teenager closer to his parents when he finds them listening to his opinion, protect him from abnormal behaviors and will help him achieve balance. 
  • Second, the parents must urge the teenager to be involved in recreational activities and trips, and to have a role in the activities of the popular squares, clubs, scouts and public services. 
  • Third, the parents must put an end to the family squabbles, and increase the family meetings, in which everyone can take a part in taking the decision. 
  • Fourth, the scientific objective teaching for the physiological and psychological changes is a must, so that the teenager doesn't fall prey to ignorance, loss, temptation and ignorance of the general views of the community and the personal experiences of the parents.
Commenting on the ways of treating teenager as a young man, Mr. al-Nasyan highlighted that this case is very easy, and falls only in the hands of the parents, who must start dealing with the teenager as a young man, involve him in the decisions, take his opinion and consultation in the family affairs, allow him the freedom of expression, and show motivation and respect for him.
 
With regard to the ways of controlling fears of the influence of the bad companions on the teenager, Mr. al-Nasyan said that the parents can reach this goal through holding a peaceful and constructive dialogue with the teenager on the short and long-term serious implications of holding friendships with such bad companions. Later on, the parents are supposed to keep the teenager away from the bad companions in a polite way so that the he does not enter a new phase of challenge and proof of manhood.
 
As a part of the activities of the health awareness program (My health ... My school) launched by the Ministry of Health (MOH) last week, the MOH's Media and Health Awareness Information Center keeps, for the second  consecutive week, on hosting a constellation of consultants and specialists through its toll-free line: 800-2494444 and the MOH's account on Twitter: @saudimoh; in order to talk about psychological and physical preparation of students for the new academic year, and to provide them as well as their parents with health tips and guidelines, enabling students to get rid of all negative emotions and psychological problems that can encounter them at the beginning of the new academic year.
 
Within the same vein, the MOH's Media and Health Awareness Information Center is to host Dr. Ahmed bin Salim Bahammam, a Consultant in Pulmonologist and Sleep Disorders, on Monday 9/9/2013 (corresponding to 3/11/1434H) from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.; in order to talk about the importance of getting enough sleep and the problems associated with the biological clock and sleep disturbances, especially at the beginning of the new academic year. Earlier, the pharmacist Mervat Barjaa will be hosted from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in order to talk about the importance of paying attention to students suffering from a chronic disease.
