As a mom fully entrenched in the teen parenting season (in the highly sensitive “managing college admissions” phase) and as a social researcher hearing from parents whenever I speak, I’m sensitive to adults’ perceptions of teens and their behavior. Much of the current media messaging and cultural conversation conveys a handwringing, going-to-heck-in-a-hand-basket attitude—a jaded skepticism about the maturity and choices of our teenagers.
I want to give you a different perspective—one that you can use as a way to talk to your kids. And one that might, just might, bring you and your child closer in the process.
