Pick Your Battles With Teens

To pick your battles with kids, for teens in particular, pick something innocuous to nag them about, to give them a way to rebel against you without major consequences. I bugged both of mine about their hair–when I didn’t really care HOW they did their hair–just so they’d think they were getting over on me to do it the way they liked. So far, no drugs/alcohol/inappropriate behaviors…they’re 14 & 20. Fingers crossed. Teri
