In her latest piece for Marina Times, teen columnist Madison Farrell gives advice guardians, lending a voice to what this generation of teenagers wish their parents knew. Writing on the joys and challenges of a modern teenager, parents may find Farrell’s words a source of both comfort and wisdom.
“Teenagers can be tough to figure out,” writes Farrell. “As one myself, I know that parenting us is no easy task. There are good days and some bad days. We struggle with trying to balance strong emotions, relationship problems, academics, and extracurriculars all while trying not to disappoint you, our parents.”
