What causes adolescents to rebel is not the assertion of authority but the arbitrary use of power, with little explanation of therules and no involvement in decision-making. . . .

It means acknowledging that the teenager is growing up and has the right to participate in decisions that affect his or her life.More Laurence Steinberg quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
