Video on Parenting Teenagers

A video on the challenges of raising teen age children. Help for parents of  teenagers.

On the HealthyPlace Mental Health TV Show, we spoke with Dr. David Laing Dawson, the author of The Adolescent Owner's Manual. Dr. Dawson says: "Your goal as a parent, Dawson says, should be to get your adolescent child into adulthood, alive, healthy, preferably educated and skilled, without a major drug problem or criminal record or pregnancy. Anything more is icing and a pleasure to behold."
