Adolescents can pose a challenge for most parents. It is a difficult time, and sometimes teens fail to cope with the turmoil in healthy ways. They may get into drugs or alcohol, promiscuity, eating disorders or other forms of self-destructive behaviors. If these problems go unaddressed, it can lead to much greater difficulty down the road. Adolescents in particular can really need an adult to talk to who is not their parent or teacher.
