"Counseling Corner"

How can you support your teen? a) cheer on the side lines, b) give high fives, c) look out for his or her best interests, d) make a banner to encourage him or her.

Supporting and encouraging your child goes beyond being a good cheerleader. Looking out for your child’s best interests is an important way to show support for your child.
