It is important for parents, no matter their age, to ensure their children are adequately prepared to face challenges later in life by maintaining a loving home environment that nurtures their ability to learn about themselves and the world around them. A strong foundation of social and emotional skills will help them make better choices in adulthood, and decrease the probability that they will search for love in the wrong places.


As a parent, giving up control is hard. You want to do everything you can to defend your child from bad decisions. But rather than crushing your teen’s independence, help them navigate the treacherous waters of being young so that they develop into mature, responsible adults. You’ll both be happy that you did.
