Listening to parents on a daily basis struggle with what is going on with their teens today can be stressful and pull at your heartstrings. Many times it has nothing to do with the parenting, it is today’s society and the harsh pressures of peer influence.
In the same respect, you can’t be a parent in denial – you can’t assume since your teen’s friend is making bad choices that your teen that is following that behavior is not part of the issue. Remember, it is your teen making the choice to smoke that joint – or drink that beer. Yes, it is peer pressure, but a teen has free will and they can say no.
