Supposedly its about other teens giving advice on how to handle your own teens.

 Honestly my best adivce for raising teens is to remember that you were a teen once and remember what you did or how you thought back then. It's important to try and think on the level of a teenager when dealing with your teens. It's hard I know because we are adults, but I swear it helps.

 I think thats a good rule to go by.  There are alot more issues with teens these days it seems then I was a kid though.  Its hard for me to get back to the teen mentality when dealing with my sons.  They get into alot of trouble so I guess my anger and frustration tends to overcome my thinking.

 You are not alone. I have this problem as well. This is when I walk away. I have to walk away to gather myself before I can address them rationally.
