The teen years are tough, how do I get past my own insecurities as a parent and have the conversations I need to with my adolescent? It's not always easy; but you got this!
There is no easy button to parenting adolescents today. If the relationship you have with your child is in a bad place it's going to take some time and effort to change things...and you can only work on your part in the relationship. But, it's an awesome place to start! YOU are in the drivers seat to a happier, healthier relationship with your teen!
