The teenage years have a lot in common with the terrible twos. The major developmental task facing both age groups is also the same: kids must pull away from parents and begin to assert their own independence. This makes for complicated parenting, especially because teens are beginning to make decisions about things that that have real consequence, like school and friends and driving, not to speak of substance use and sex. This means that having a healthy and trusting parent-child relationship during the teenage years is more important than ever. A request that seemed reasonable to dad may be received as a grievous outrage.

The desire for more privacy is a natural part of growing up. As teens get older, they begin facing big challenges, like learning what kind of person they are, where they fit in, and what they want to do in life. Their brains also are rapidly developing; they are gaining new thinking skills and developing new social interests. For parents, this time period can be a huge adjustment as well.

Help for Parents of Troubled Teens
More comfortable online than out partying, post-Millennials are safer, physically, than adolescents have ever been. O ne day last summer, around noon, I called Athena, a year-old who lives in Houston, Texas. We chatted about her favorite songs and TV shows, and I asked her what she likes to do with her friends. I have to check in every hour or every 30 minutes. Those mall trips are infrequent—about once a month.
