          Could Your Teen Be Blinded by Love? The Six Warning Signs

          October 03, 2011

          Parents: Are you worried about your teen’s love life? Find out the six warning signs that they could be blinded by love:

          1) Secret/Incessant Texting Your teen’s texts have increased in frequency; he/she hides in a room with their cell phone.

          2) Loss of Close Friends/Buddies Good friends visit less frequently or disappear from your teen’s life completely.

          3) Trouble at School Your teen is receiving bad grades, skipping class, having discipline problems and there’s been an increase in the number of calls from the principal’s office.

          4) Preoccupied with Being in Touch Your teen is always waiting on their significant other’s availability or next date. Everything else is a second priority in their life.

          5) Dishonesty Your teen begins to lie for their boyfriend or girlfriend, making excuses for him or her and lying about last contact (ex. “Have you seen him today?” “No.”)

          6) Obsession Your teen’s significant other is constantly on their mind, but they don’t want to talk about their relationship with you.

          Warning Signs If two or more of the above sound familiar, there is reason for concern. If three or more sound familiar, you definitely have a communication issue. Now is the time to bridge the gap with your teen. Sit them down and find out what's going on today.
