We’ve all done stupid things when we were young. Heck, sometimes I think back on some of the decisions I made as a teen, and am completely amazed that I never got arrested and am still alive and well! It’s unrealistic to think that our teenagers will avoid such screw-ups by learning from OUR mistakes. They have to make their own. Teens are going to slip up…it’s in their DNA. But instead of turning into Judge Judy, perhaps we, the experienced, insightful, and understanding grown-ups that we are now, can help our teens learn from their mistakes, and move on.
