Few stages in a child’s life are more crucial than the transition between adolescence and young adulthood. As a parent, you’ve watched your baby grow and learn, marking each milestone over the lifetime. Sooner or later, the child is emerging into adulthood, attempting to sort out his or her future with all the possibilities that college, career, and independent, self-determined life in the community can bring. To make his journey smooth, his parents should focus on some important points to build his future. Here we will discuss some ways to prepare a child for Transition into Adulthood.


Communication is key in any relationship. Personal or business-related communication provides the structure for strong relationships. Communication demonstrates an awareness of each other’s needs, fears and talents. It nourishes the relationship. Parents can engage and interact with a child to make their communication strong to become open to them and talk to them more openly.

Financial Liberty

It is far most important for a parent to teach their child the proper usage of money and make effective and informed financial decisions. As financial literacy isn’t really a topic in our education system, thus the responsibility of teaching your teens financial management skills falls on to you.

To teach practical lessons on budgeting and saving cash, give your teens allowance and pocket money monthly, let them spend their money buying their own clothes or snacks on their own. As they grow older, let them open a bank account to learn how to write checks and keep track of financial records. Include adolescents during discussions of family finances.g., choosing college scholarships or planning a vacation.

Interpersonal Skills

Parents should emphasize their child involved in interacting and communicating with others and building lasting relationships that make friends and influence people. Unfortunately, nowadays, teens conduct most of their interactions via social media and risk losing out on verbal and non-verbal communication intricacies.

That’s why, as a parent, you must give your teens plenty of opportunities to socialize. Parents also need to teach basic etiquette, the art of conversing, develop strategies for dealing with negative emotions, and conflict resolution skills.

Social Support

By being supportive at an early age. Parents act as a shoulder for a child to rely on during some phases child’s life. He undergoes a lot; he learns a lot, and he starts to understand how things work. Under this phase, he requires social-emotional support.

Always remind your child you are there to help when needed. Honour his independence and individuality.

Adore Physical Changes

A way of good parenting is to help the child teach him to adore physical changes. Teach them about puberty and explain what’s ahead. Reassure them that physical changes and emerging sexuality are part of normal, healthy development. Maintain healthy conversations with your child so that he can ask questions. Talk to your doctor when needed.

Reasonable Restriction

As the child grows, he learns more from what he sees and feel. Social media, reality TV shows and internet usage have a major influence on the child. Put some reasonable restrictions on all of their usage as they majorly impact a child. Allow them to read books, novels to increase their cognitive development, tell them to make physical friends rather than virtual ones. According to a survey, young girls are molested by paedophiles more on social media. Teach them what is right and what is wrong and keep an eye on internet usage.

Don’t let your child grow under false expectation. Children often feel pressurize by parental expectation and societal expectation.
