How to Identify if your child is using the Heard slang word

You might learn your child is using this slang term by chance when a text pops up on the phone screen. But while the slang term heard is harmless, other teenage slang terms could indicate that your teen is talking about risky behaviors or communicating with potentially dangerous people.

Having a parental control app on your child’s phone will give you peace of mind by alerting you to your child’s exposure to risks encountered on their phone. With a parental control app installed on your child’s phone, you have the control to set alerts to help your teen avoid the pitfalls of predators, drug dealers, and other negative influences. Having the ability to vary the level of monitoring gives you the power to choose what is right for your child, and these levels can be adjusted easily at any time.

How to talk with your child about use of the Heard slang word

Everyone wants to feel heard and respected, especially teenagers. As they lurch through this phase of being neither children nor adults, one of the most important ways parents can help is by listening and allowing their teenagers to be heard. Parents don’t have to agree with what their kids are saying, but by listening respectfully they are more likely to discover what’s going on in their teen’s mind.

Here are tips for behaving in a way that will encourage your teen to talk to you:

  • Be a good listener. Avoid interrupting and jumping into the conversation with judgement.
  • Control your reactions. If you become angry or seem uncomfortable, your teen will cease to confide in you.
  • Don’t try to solve their problems. Avoid the temptation to jump in and fix things.
  • Keep an even perspective. If your kid earns a poor grade or gets benched for improper behavior, it’s not the end of the world. Stay calm and support your teen as he/she figures out how to improve.
