Ask the Experts Talk with Paddy Laske, Director, Community & Workplace Programs, CARE of Southeastern Michigan.

Your teen is choosing friends/activities that concern you. Gone is the little child who just wanted to be with you all the time. A question quickly turns on their defenses and instead of learning what's going on, you're more in the dark than ever - what do you do?

How we choose to respond in these difficult situations can have a tremendous impact. This presentation will review a simple step-by-step plan that encourages opportunities for honest, respectful dialogue and setting parental boundaries that work.
