Talk to them. Remember what it was like to be 18 yrs old. Your parents probably told you a lot of "because I said so" without really explaining why. Teenagers need boundaries, rules, and discipline. But they also need comminucation. They're going to bend the rules, test your patience, and piss you off! But you have to talk to them, and let them know why your rules are in place. To keep them safe.
