Parenting teens is often exciting, chaotic, fun, and stressful. Parents often struggle to communicate effectively during the teen years. Dr. Ken Wilgus encourages moms and dads to relax a little bit, back off from micromanaging, and start treating their teen more like a budding adult. That means NOT parenting your 16-year-old the same ways you did when they were 6. That means showing them more respect and communicating to them the same way you would another adult. And, the biggest issue for parents, learning to let go of trying to control your teen.
