Parenting Tip Sheets - Teen
Teens need their parents. Every day they have big decisions to make about school, friends, smoking, drugs and drinking.
They welcome hearing “good job” when they make a good choice. After a bad choice, they need you to teach them how to do better next time.
It may be hard for you to stay calm and in control. If what you say and do is not helping, call the Parent Help Line. We will listen. We can help you find answers and make a new plan of action.
Read these tip sheets and try again and again. Learning takes time and patience. Your teen is worth the effort.
