When you communicate specifically what you want and need, your teen-ager is likely to respond in a positive way.
Be patient with me. I am human and sometimes I make mistakes.
Tell me where you are going and when you will return. Then I’ll know you are safe.
Know that you are okay no matter how I feel and what I do. I’m responsible for all of my feelings and actions.
Be positive and realize that you are responsible for your decisions. That will help you make wise choices and be happy, healthy and successful.
Thank you for hearing me.
I love you!
