Holding on through the Teen Years
Good article here. I liked:
- Insist teens give you at least one day's notice of any request.
- If you can't stay up until your teen's curfew, sleep in his bed.
- Don't dismiss puppy love.
Some other good advice on acne, sleep habits and straight talk from (gasp!) actual teeenagers.
I thought most of the article was pretty right on. But on the other hand, it made me realize that the students I come into direct contact with, wow, some of these things don't apply. Because I think:
#1 - they are mature
#2 - they understand life's priorities correctly
#3 - they have a realization that they have it pretty good in comparision to the world around them.
