What parents should know

By a teen and young adult therapist of 30 years
  1. They have sex years before you think they do
  2. They do drugs a lot more than you can imagine
  3. They hate doing things for appearance
  4. The more you need others to think you're a saint or a genius
  5. The more foolish they'll think you are.
  6. It takes a lot of effort to drive kids away
  7. So if you lose them when they turn 20, that was pretty hard work on your part
