This discussion is a two-part question. There are a variety of parenting styles that are incorporated during adolescence. First, identify a parenting style that you have either witnessed or experienced and describe how this parenting style can positively or negatively affect an adolescent.
Second, discuss strategies parents can use to promote the positive development of an adolescent who is struggling with issues related to sexual behavior, sexual orientation or identity, and/or gender roles and identity issues. Be sure to support your post with concepts from the video, Human Growth & Development: Working With Adolescents and Young Adults (https://search.alexanderstreet.com/preview/work/bibliographic_entity%7Cvideo_work%7C3168576), as well as other peer reviewed resources.
