Arguing With Your Teen All .. the ... Time? Here's Why Not to Take the (Crazy) Bait When It Comes to Teenagers!

If you're yelling, your teenager feels trapped. You've seen it: an innocent argument over laundry goes from zero to crazy right before your eyes. 

You're the adult; you can't argue with fools and you know it. 

Teens are programmed to short-circuit their parents. If you're yelling, they've got you right where they want you. 

  • Keep your cool. You're above all that. 
  • Close your mouth; step away.
  • Apply the 24-hour rule and see if things make more sense when a new day dawns. 

Don't take a ride on the crazy train with your teenager!
