Risky Business for Teens

Prom season is in full swing and summer vacation is right around the corner, which means risky business for parents of teens.

Here with what all parents of teens need to know was our favorate pediatrician, Dr. George Bengston from the Broadway Medical Clinic.

Below are some tips from Dr. Bengston:

  1. Emphasize importance of SAFETY in this age group
  2. Teach humility and caution
  3. Give teens a way out if they are caught in an unsafe situation, such as providing an adult contact other than a parent or guardian. (Dr. Bengston hands out his business cards and tells teens to give him a call if they are in an unsafe situation, but are afraid to call their parents.)
