Love them, communicate with them, provide appropriate boundaries and consequences without going over the top, provide them with an education, support them in their lives, guide them in their choices, basically, be there for them, but don't wrap them in cotton wool. Teens WILL make poor choices at times,

Read the book "Too Safe for Their Own Good" - it was an excellent read, and excellent advice. For me it has given me a lot of confidence in parenting my teens, and have also applied in teaching and connecting with my teenage students too.
