Often a teenager tries to try everything -Today he listens to classical music, tomorrow - heavy rock, today he goes to ballroom dancing, tomorrow - to boxing or karate. Parents should understand that at this age the guys do not have constant hobbies, so do not panic ahead of time.
If the parents confidently decided that they want to contributeAdjustments to the way of life of your child, the best way will be to distract him from his usual pastime and show that there are still many unexplored fascinating things in the world.
