    Parenting is important your teen wants to hear from you! 1. Maintain a close relationship, discuss your shared interests regularly, and find ways to do

    activities together.

    2. Stay calm when talking to your teen and give positive feedback often.

    3. Know your childs friends have direct conversations with them whenever you can. Encourage your child to hang out with friends at your house.
