Think about it; the once little bundle of joy who could tell mommy and daddy anything starts withdrawing and doing all manner of things that as may just seem to be out rightly anying and challenging your authority as a parent. It's as bad as the toddler years of the terrible twos or even worse especially because unlike the terrible twos, teenagers can hold grudges and consistently act in a manner that makes you cringe as a parent. It is quite obvious that as your children reach the teenage level, they begin changing; both physically and behaviour wise. Sometimes the kids seem hell bent on doing the exact opposite of what you may be asking as their parent. However, just as you as a parent may think your child has turned for the worst or are afraid they may, the truth is that the child is going through so many things. If you use the same old parenting ways of dealing with toddlers, you just may lose your teenager to whatever it is you are trying so hard to keep him/her away from. Your child is t exactly the little kid you once knew; they are w teens who need to be treated as teens and if you don't get it right, you probably may be setting yourself up for failure and unnecessary headaches.
