Your child craves connection.

They may not act like it. In fact, they may act the exact opposite. But every teen wants to know there’s someone they can talk to and trust. Someone they can ask questions without feeling threatened or judged. Building a strong connection with your child can give them the confidence they need to avoid temptation and make better choices. It doesn’t mean they will want to hang out with you all the time. It means when they need you, they know you’ll be there. Because they trust you, and they know you care about their well-being.
