If you RESPECT me,
I will hear you.

If you LISTEN to me,
I will feel understood.

If you UNDERSTAND me,
I will feel appreciated.

If you APPRECIATE me,
I will know your support.

If you SUPPORT me as I try
new things,
I will become responsible.

When I am RESPONSIBLE,
I will grow to be independent.

In my INDEPENDENCE,
I will respect you and love you all
of my life.

Thank you,

Your Teenager

“Take the first step in Faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

– Martin Luther King

Ask your teenagers (and if you are the teenager reading this, ask yourself) before going to a party, an event or when “hanging out” – “There may be people drinking. Have you thought about how you’re going to handle that?” Then really listen to their answers…
There’s nothing better, EVER, than talking about ANY issues with your teenager. It’s a choice we as parents would have to make AND it then becomes our kids’ choice, once they know the facts, risks, and implications, how to become responsible drinkers or how to completely stay away from alcohol and other drugs. In today’s WSJ there was an interesting article that I recommend you discuss with your teenage kids at the dinner table tonight.
