Parenting, Children and Teens - Spotlighting Teen Issues for Parents
As parents, you want your teens to have an easy transition into adulthood. You want them to have friends and be liked at school. While you want to encourage them, you also worry that they may choose the wrong friends and be negatively influenced by them.
In addition, the teenage years bring changes in your child’s view of you: parents who once knew everything suddenly don’t understand anything. This attitude is normal, but it doesn’t make parenting easier!
