What is the biggest misconception you think parents have about teens?
Adults in general think that teenagers are so self-centered that they fail to recognize that there are bigger problems in the world. Although teens may not express this at every given chance, a larger portion of the teenage population than most parents think is, in fact, aware.
If there is one thing you could tell parents about teens what would it be?
Extremity on either end of the parenting spectrum is negative in the long run. Parents who are too lax with their kids will not retain the respect that is necessary, but extremely strict parents will end up turning their children away. Also, teens have to learn to make their own choices. You can’t always stop a mistake before it happens, or your child will never learn for him or herself.
What is your favorite website?
I don’t think I have one, but the one I use most often is Google, I guess.
