Share Insights (Not Opinions)


Think your teenager doesn’t care what you think? Think again. Research has proven that teens look to adults for all sorts of facts, and they trust what comes from parents more than from friends. They may not ask for your opinion (because they want to figure out stuff on their own), but they do want information. Don’t believe us? Set aside a week to count up how many questions your teen asks you because they value your insight. See? So hang tight. Follow their lead. And make it clear your door is always open for questions.

Smart thought, right? Keep snack time going with another bite of parenting advice, or sign up for our newsletter and get the next snack delivered to your inbox.
