  • Why teens need 3 people (other than parents) in their lives to act as mentors and guides
  • What kinds of cultural icons are shaping teens today
  • Best time to have a meaningful conversation with your teen, and how to approach it
  • Ways that parents’ habits influence teens’ behaviors now and into the future
  • Specific ways to manage technology issues with teens (both proactive and reactive)
  • And so much more…
