Changing How We See Teens
Young people live up or down to the expectations we set for them. There are too many inaccurate and undermining stereotypes about teens. They hurt adolescents, disempower parents, and harm family connections. Learn how to see and expect the best in your tween or teen.
We want to raise our teens to be fully prepared to become successful adults. How can we prepare them to lead us into the future?
As we celebrate our teens’ growth, we must protect ourselves and our teens from popular, undermining messages about adolescents.
Parents can reason with and influence teens! Don’t fall prey to the myth of invulnerability.
During times when you feel most challenged by your teen, remember all that’s wonderful in them and see them as they deserve to be seen. It makes a difference.
