No parent wants their teenager to be too inactive, but actually a little inactivity for a teenager is good for their development. This downtime can help you explore a new interest, find a topic to discover, or just do internal reflections to help you get to know yourself a little better.
Adolescence is when young people learn who they are as individuals and it is important to think ahead. After all, the teenage years are a time when many dreams are born. Everyone needs moments of calm and relaxation. If your teenager does not have moments of disconnection and rest, perhaps he has too many responsibilities. The following signs are a clear warning that your teenager has too much to do.
If your teenager usually has good grades and suddenly their grades begin to drop, something is really going wrong. The numbers don’t lie, and when the ratings start to drop, it’s time to take a good look at the priorities. The school work must come first because that depends largely on its future.
Your teen should have plenty of time to be able to do homework, study for tests, and be ready for school before allowing him to continue with other extracurricular activities.
NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP
If your teenager is so busy that you do not give him enough time to do everything that he has to do during the day, you need to look at what is happening. The dream should never be punished for that. Although it is recommended that teens get at least 9 hours of sleep a night, research shows that only 7% of teens get enough sleep.
Lack of soil can have serious consequences . Unfortunately, many teens fall into the trap of thinking that they will do more by staying up late. But, lack of sleep can impede productivity the next day. The less efficient you are at doing your job, the longer it will take you to complete your tasks. If your child does not have enough time to sleep what he needs, he could have serious health problems or even physical health problems.
SUFFER WITH HEALTH
Being too busy can affect your teen’s health in a number of ways. If you have too busy a schedule, you may not have time to take care of yourself, unable to exercise, or eating healthy. Over time, that can seriously affect your well-being. The stress of having too much to do, and too little time to do it, can also affect the physical and mental health of a teenager (and anyone).
HAS NO TIME FOR FRIENDS
Lack of time can mean that your teen doesn’t have time to spend with friends. A teenager with a busy schedule will not have time to enjoy himself with his friends. Actually, teens need to spend time with their friends for good social development.
Even if you think that teenagers have enough when they see their friends in high school, in reality these structured activities within the educational center will not leave them much time to socialize well. Your teen needs the opportunity to get away from all the rules that come with structured activities. Spending time with friends away from adults is key to helping your teen learn how to resolve conflicts, communicate with others, and solve problems
Maybe you love to play the piano, but you don’t have time to practice because everything is too much on your schedule. An overly busy teen might start to say no to funnier activities like a night’s rest, movies with friends, and joining the family for their favorite dinner. If you realize that your child begins to be sad about this overload, it will be necessary to start taking measures, this overload could stress him too much and what is worse, it could put him at risk of suffering from depression due to exhaustion.
It is important that you dream your adolescent to prioritize the most important activities so that in this way, he does the most important thing first and the least, only if he gives time and if not, he can organize it for another time. The moments of rest are absolutely obligatory!
