Important insights for parents – recorded on video!

Dr. Coates has some important things to say about raising teenagers and frequently records his thoughts on video.

I often tell young adults, “One day you’ll leave home and make your own way in life. And then you’ll find out how hard it is, a lot harder than you might think. You need to start now to become strong as person….”


One of the first casualties of adolescence is the friction that can arise when a teen begins to assert independence while reacting emotionally to attempts to control the teen’s behavior. This video was produced to make some important points about forming and growing relationships, so it also applies to parent-teen relationships.


I’m putting in a lot of time right now checking facts about what’s going on in the teen brain.
