I don't think teenagers are really that much different than anyone else. They really just want love and acceptance, but they don't often show that they want it from their parents. I know that just loving your kids sounds kind of cliche, but that's really the first step. Love your kids, get to know what they are interested in, and accept the fact that they are their own individuals. Once you are able to do those things, then it's a little easier to speak into their lives and coach them through these pressure-filled years.
