It’s not easy being a teen today. It’s not easy being a parent either.
Have you ever wished your child came with a "how to" manual? Or, perhaps you just long for a "trouble shooting guide" for when your child enters adolescence? If so, you are not alone! CY believes that parenting a child is one of the most difficult tasks there is in life. Requiring more than just a good sense of humor--although that is important--it takes real skill! Not only that, but you can’t be everywhere to guide your teens as they make choices.
YOU DO INFLUENCE YOUR CHILDREN!
Talk with your kids to prepare them to make healthy decisions. Educate yourself on the risks of underage drinking and drug use and talk openly and often with your teen.
