As families roll into the fall season, the founder of A Brighter Day shares his tips to strengthen the relationship between parents and their teens.
“Dedicate a day or two to giving quality, undivided attention to your teen. You can get creative here; they would instead not do this, but it’s important. Make it fun. Involve their interests.”— Elliot Kallen, President of A Brighter Day

As parents, it’s crucial to pay attention to the signs.
