I don't believe any of us have all the answers to help our teens, but we have had a few things work well for us. The main thing I have learned is that they want you to listen to them. I have found that if I will be sitting down when they come home from school, they will come sit down and talk to me about their day. I have found that our relationship grows as I listen and don't try to solve or comment on anything. Now, they even tell me things that know I wouldn't approve of, because the relationship has been formed!!!
