As your child grows older, there may be times when your values conflict with the values that they are learning from other people and the media. Talk with your teen and let them know what is important to you and why. Give them a chance to respond, and make sure you really listen. When you are genuinely willing to engage in a dialogue, you may find that the conversation is much more effective.
