Your teen may worry that you're freaked out and disappointed by something in the conversation. He or she may have said some things that it will take some time to accept. It's important to remind your teen that no matter what happens, you're still there for him or her. Remind your teen of your unconditional love, and thank him or her for coming to you. Tell your teen that you're willing to make these kind of conversations an ongoing thing, and that you'll always be ready to listen.
