5 Things You Need to Know about Parenting Teens

The thought of parenting a teen has always been a little scary. After all, there are so many horror stories about parenting our older kids and adolescents that it’s hard to make it out of the first few years of parenting without thinking about it. Or without having many stories shared with you, whether you want to hear them or not.

But what if parenting a teen can be gentle? What if it can feel good to everyone? Not to say that there aren’t bumps in the road, challenges that come up, or times when we’re triggered. Or times when they’re triggered. All of that is part of life.
