Sometimes parents assume the only way to be good parents is to be in control of their teens… and to stop ‘em from making mistakes. Hi, I’m Mark Gregston… with Parenting Today’s Teens. If you’ve got a death grip on your child… or you swoop in to save them from a potential failure… get ahold of yourself! Hey, a good parent actually gives away control to their growing child. It’s the only way your teen will learn through the decisions he makes. So… it’s time to quit doing everything for your teen. Think of it as a well-deserved vacation! You get to let go of some of the responsibility you’ve been carrying around… and let your teen take some of the weight. Mom … dad … maybe it’s time to let go!
