Raising Teens

From the Harvard School of Public Health, Center for Health Communication, this free report (available online as a pdf download) identifies 5 basics for parents:

Love and Connect - Monitor and Observe - Guide and Limit - Model and Consult - Provide and Advocate

Written by A. Rae Simpson, Ph.D., the report cites widespread agreement among researchers that parental relationships are key to healthy teen development.

Family and Home Network asked parents to tell us about their own experiences with each of the five basics - see our webpage "Raising Teens" for the parent narratives, and add your own comments and ideas.
