Parental Pressure – Tips for Teenaged Boys


  •  Are your parents forcing you to select a particular field in studies?
  • Are they giving you too many responsibilities now that you are growing up?

Listen up
You need to take it to your head that you’re growing up, and anyone would expect a boy to be mature in thinking as well as responsible! It’s not necessary to start arguing, because that’s not manliness!

Explain clearly
Talk to your parents about what you wish to choose and why. Sometimes, they may not even know what your choice is.

Be organized
Being organized can help you a lot with your responsibilities! If you are forgetful, maintain a little notebook where you can write down what you’re supposed to do!

If you are stressed out, always turn to Allah (swt) first!
As a boy, you may be a little hesitant to express your emotions or tell anyone how stressed out you are. But remember, you don’t have to lock yourself up, because Allah (swt) is willing to listen!

“If My servants ask you about Me, I am near. I answer the call of the caller when he calls on Me. They should therefore respond to Me and believe in Me so that hopefully they will be rightly guided. (Al-Baqarah 2:186)

May Allah (swt) make your tasks easy!
