So, you've just had the most epic fight with your mother. You've decided to lock yourself in your room and cut off all contact, but that isn't working either. Some days you may feel like you want to shut your mother out of your world completely. You shouldn't. This is one of the most significant relationships you have, and all it takes is to put in a little effort to make things right. Tensions might be running high after a fight with your mom, but you can make things right by reflecting on your argument and talking to her about your feelings. Even though you might be steaming mad and want to keep yelling, take some time apart from your mom to cool down.
Are teenage boys delinquent because they don't have a close relationship with their mothers, or does a child's character determine how easy it is for a parent to foster warmth and closeness? Is it anyone's fault? A new longitudinal study published this week in the journal Child Development suggests that the mother-son bonds are critical in determining a boy's behavior as a teenager. Both the study and a new film -- "Talk About Kevin" -- raise questions about which comes first: the inability of a mother to show warmth toward the child or the child's inability to bond with the parent. Reseachers say it's not anyone's fault, but the relationship is critical to the child's healthy development.
