How do you know if your child is telling the truth or not?

Seth started a new tradition today. He ran around giving out chocolate bars to his friends. Sarah copied him so I did too.

I don't recognize who I am anymore. What's changed? What will I keep?

How do I help my son who just got his first B ever recover and have hopes in getting into an Ivy league now? and how do I help his stress level come down a bit? He is so wound up, trying to adjust to a new school.

Wow, Claire, that is tough. It sounds like improving the situation will take more than "catching them doing something right."

Can I suggest a family meeting? Make sure that the teens can come, as well as your husband if he is available. I would start by stating calmly what upset you so much, and why. Deal with the situation at hand, not past or future transgressions. Then listen to their side of the story. Listen and repeat back what you hear them saying, in your own words. Even if it sounds ridiculous to you.At least you will understand where they are coming from.

You may find you want to set down guidelines right then, or you may want to think about the discussion and call a meeting again in a couple of days. It's your house, you are in charge and make the rules, but they are nearly adults and have their own life and opinions. Good luck!

How can I catch the teens in my family doing something right when they break so many rules? How do I put a brake on breaking the rules that are important to me?
