While there is nothing worse for a teen than to think their parents are trying to fit into their world, there is also a need for the parents to ensure their teenage children understand the ‘olds’ are not against all they treasure. So having an understanding of where the teens are coming from with their music will help. You don't have to personally like it, just let your teens know it is okay that they like it.
So you’ve figured out that the sounds emanating from the teen-controlled areas of the house are called “hip hop" and this is the “music they favor. " Or you’ve determined, perhaps based on information obtained from a little bird, that the small electronic implement plugged into your child is playing this sort of music.
Your son or daughter has a special day coming up or are to be rewarded for something well done and you ask what they would like. The answer comes that they would like a speical poster for the wall in their room and this is to be a Hip Hop poster. Now to save getting the wrong poster, ask for a wish list of artists they like to see on their wall.
Choosing the Right Artist
Finding a hip hop poster that portrays the correct artist or group is essential. The world of hip hop is related to the world of ‘rap’. The posters can portray inner city street scenes, street gangs and anger and the like.
That is why this art form is so popular with middle-class suburban teens. The artists engage in theatrical battles with each other similar to professional wrestling. Selecting a hip hop poster of your teen's enemy artist is a big no-no, so by asking for a wish list of Hip Hop artists you can then choose one that you feel is okay. .
These days change is happening almost overnight. The artist your teen couldn't live without hearing yesterday, could have taken the back row today. So when looking for that hip hop poster, make sure you have the current list of favorite artists.
No Appeal, To Each His Own
The hip hop posters will have no appeal to the average adult. In most cases, the hip hop poster your teen can't live without, will not appeal to you in the slightest, but you will not have to look at it very often. Most teens will position it on a wall in their room and most teens like their privacy.
There are many times in your children's lives where you will have to bite your tongue and go with the flow, the more you resist the more determined they become. Many of these phases pass and the hip hop poster phase will too, remember dinosaurs, about age three up to about seven. That phase passed too.
