My adolescent son has a habit of pulling his hair, what should I do?
Q: My son who is 14 years old has a habit of pulling his hair and meddling with it, especially while studying and eating his food. I am afraid that this habit might hinder his studies. So please help me.
A:Adolescents are very sensitive and too much interference in their personal habits is not desirable. It may even rebound and make the child rebellious. Try to ignore the behaviour and make a constructive suggestion when he is in a receptive mode. Take care not to repeat yourself or be derogatory. Transitory behaviours may pass off soon.
