It is easy for parents to feel that they have lost their influence over their children once children reach adolescence. Several organizations with different focuses but with the same goal of helping parents raise their teenagers banded together to develop this publication. Their message is that parents can do many things to foster their children's talents and skills while guiding them towards healthy development. Several ideas for parents are detailed that can help make a difference in the lives of their children. Some of the ideas include: (1) spend time with the children; (2) help teens gain a sense of self-confidence; (3) work with teens to set goals; (4) let teens know that education is valued highly; (5) stay involved in their children's schools; and (6) know where the children are and what they are doing at all times. A list of resources is included. (JDM)
