“Sometimes it can be difficult to know how to act with your teenager. Especially when one is exposed to “nagging” and pressure as a parent.

And is it really wrong to give his eighteen-year-old son a bottle of beer when he becomes a student? As a parent, it is important that you take responsibility, are clear with your expectations and stand up for what you think is important. And say no sometimes.”
