Tips for Parenting Your Teen

You’ve made it!  Your child is now a teenager.  Friends play a big part in your teen’s life, but that doesn’t mean that you are done your job as a parent.  Building healthy relationships with a teenager may seem challenging, but it is critical, so check out these helpful tips.

It is important to know that parents continue to have a great impact on their teen’s behavior and choices.  Teens are influenced by their parents’ ideas of right and wrong, and what’s important in life.  And they also watch what you do, and how you react to life’s situations.  So, stay involved, talk to your teen, show an interest, provide guidance and structure, and let your teen know that you love them.
