Ways to Become a Responsible Adolescent Prepared for Adult Life

Becoming responsible and being able to make good choices are very important traits no matter what developmental stage you are in. It holds true for adolescents especially that they are just beginning to internalize and imbibe virtues, values, and other essential qualities.   

It may not be easy to be a teenager. There may be lots of things going on in various facets of their lives. The demands and expectations of their parents and other people around them can also be stressful. But the good news is, they can treat these ‘difficulties’ as ‘challenges’ which can make their life exciting. Having that mindset is also an indication of becoming a responsible and mentally mature adolescent.

The following are eight (8) simple rules which could help you, teenagers, to become a responsible adolescent prepared for adult life:

1. Focus on your studies and do well in all of your endeavors. There is time for everything.

2. Take care of your health and hygiene. Healthy body and mind are important as you journey through adolescence.

3. Establish good communication and relation with your parents or guardian. Listen to them. This may be easier said than done at this stage, but creating good relationship with them will do you good as they are the ones you can lean on especially in times of trouble.

4. Think a lot before doing something. Evaluate probable consequences before acting. Practice self-control and self-discipline.

5. Choose to do the right thing. There are plenty of situations in which it is better to use your mind rather than your heart.

6. Do your best to resist temptations, bad acts, and earthly pleasures and commit to being a responsible adolescent.

7. Respect yourself. You are an adult in the making. Do not let your teenage hormones get into you. If you respect yourself, others will respect you too.
