Respect isn’t something that too many teens are familiar with. They know how to put on an act, but when it comes to really respecting and treasuring something, they are often in the dark.

Love

Make sure that they often expression their love through their actions and words. Even when things are at a standstill, you should know that you are loved.

Hard Working

Most of the “cool” guys in high school are the slackers. The guys smoking cigarettes behind the building and ditching halfway through the day. You should tell your daughter that these guy will end up being nothing but trouble. Guide her toward the guy who works hard everyday. Someone with a good work ethic is bound to put more into a relationship. If someone is ditching school and failing, chances are they aren’t going to be the best boyfriends.

Responsible

In a relationship responsibility is a must. Most relationships are meant to bloom. This blooming comes with more responsibilities and closer bond with your partner. If your teenage daughter has a irresponsible boyfriend, chances are she’ll be left in the dust on a number of occasions. It’s important that she find someone who is responsible for his actions.
