It can really be difficult to be on the same page as your teen. Teens and parents traditionally have issues getting along because teenagers are going through a lot of life changes.

I read a post recently about 6 First Steps for Parents of Troubled Teens. The post listed six different ways you can begin to face the problems that you and your teen are having getting along.
