The teenage years can be turbulent times, with many new stresses and challenges along the way. Spending more time talking to friends and less time talking to parents is a totally normal part of teenagers establishing that independence.

If you can find a way to consistently talk to your teen, it shows that you are interested in their life and that you care about how they are thinking and feeling. This also provides a vital balance against the uncertainties and insecurities they can face when they are away from home.
