We are living in scary times with natural disasters, protests, riots, division, and a pandemic. Now add to that being a teenager in these turbulent times. Many teens have had to adjust their schooling online, leave behind sports, or performances, and stay socially distant! So what are some ways that parents and grandparents can be a positive, encouraging voice in their teen’s life? How can this extra at home time be used to help our teen grow, explore, be connected even when things are different? Thursday we get expert advice from Axis cofounder and author David Eaton on how to engage your teenager and take the long view in building a lifetime conversation.
