So much of a teen’s life feels like a secret, and parents don’t know how to access that secret. Not knowing can cause anxiety and lead to parents’ routinely snooping through teens’ computers and phones. But what about respectful boundaries? “Boundaries are hard at any age,” says author, Susan Morris Shaffer. “I think (parents) really need to model good boundaries and show the kind of respect you expect from your teens. It’s important that parents be clear and be intentional about what those boundaries are.” Annie talks to Susan about respecting a teen’s boundaries, making sure they respect ours, and finding healthy ways to connect as a family in this Digital Age.
