Parenting Teens

Are you sure your kid would never do that?

Parents know their kids. They've taught them right from wrong, good from bad and smart from stupid. When kids are out in the world, parents hope those lessons guide their reaction to potential threats to safety. Before kids go off to college, a review of those lessons is a good idea.

Mike Domitrz is  the nation's premier teen skill-building expert. Sunday, June 14, Domitrz will be featured on a Dateline NBC episode calledMy Kid Would Never Do That.This is a program worth watching for parents and teens.

Mother's Day Resolution for Parenting Teens

Celebrating your past accomplishments as a mom this Mother's Day, resolve to celebrate a wonderful future with your kids as well by nurturing them and not nagging about college and their future. The junior and senior years of high school are the last 2 years you will have the most influence over your kids. After that, the relationship will be more distant because you are more likely to live apart.
 
Resolve that you will act in a way that celebrates your child's uniqueness, respects budding adulthood and autonomy in your child and insures his future success.
