parent Ann Marie Andexler
"If we hope to matter, lead and make a difference we need to plan for it.  Know why you matter. Know and define your core values and create opportunities to live them. Once established youth can use these core values to help them in their decision making. Work hard to make your grades extraordinary and then work twice as hard to make them the least impressive thing about you. "

Parents should have ongoing discussions with their kids so that when they need to make their own decisions they have a solid foundation to make the healthy choice. Keep your sense of humor and use the media and real life situations as a way to begin these challenging conversations. Be clear about your values and talk facts rather than beliefs. Teens needs accurate information to help protect them from the pressures that are real. Be open to their questions so you can be an askable adult!
