Talking with your teen matters, take time to talk with them about healthy relationships, substance use and mental health. Help youth grow into healthy responsible adults. Research confirms what young people already know—what parents have to say matters. That's why parents play a powerful role in helping adolescents make healthy decisions. But if you think talking to your son or daughter is tough, or it makes you nervous, know that you're not alone. Other parents feel the same as you.
