Almost but Not Yet
Don’t treat teens like children. Remember that in two or three short years these young people will be old enough to vote, get married, move away from home, and pursue their own lives. They are no longer children and respond best to being treated with the respect of young adults.
However, they are not adults yet! Their attention spans are short and they tend to be impulsive. Don’t hold the fact that they aren’t all the way grown up against them.
