What Happened To My Baby: How Do Parents Talk To Their Maturing Teen?, Part 2

We were all young once. We all had to navigate our way through school homework, friendships, teenage angst, and our parents! However, relationships with our growing adolescents are made more complicated these days, with the increasing speed and expectations of society and technology.

Parents of teenagers often share with us that two of the biggest challenges that they face with their children is communication and discipline. How can parents communicate so that their teens will listen? And how do we navigate boundaries and discipline effectively?
