10 Answers to Your Teen's Uncomfortable Questions

"Here Are Some More Trustworthy Resources."

You shouldn't shy away from answering your teen's tough questions, but you needn't be the only one that your teen consults on such matters. Do a little research and find some books and Web sites you can recommend to your teen. Let your teen know that it's OK to consult other adults if he or she would like. Your teen's doctor, a family priest or a school counselor may all have wise words to share. Offer to set up appointments for your teen to chat with someone, and provide transportation if your teen can't drive yet. But don't let these other parties take full responsibility for the tough talks; check in with your teen regularly to see if he or she has follow-up questions.
