Raising Responsible, Resilient, Self-Sufficient Teens in the 21st Century
Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg
Teens and Problem Solving
Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D.,a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, comes on the show to discuss how parents can help guide their youth to develop their own solutions to problems. He will give valuable advice on a proactive plan-of-attack for all parents who find themselves at a loss when considering the “whens” and “hows” of parenting in the 21st century.
By asking themselves three simple questions--is it safe? Is it practical? Does it meet my standards for morality and decency?—parents can then begin a thoughtful evaluation of how to address the inevitabilities of parenting: Whether it’s getting a cell phone for their child, letting them stay at home alone, or drive with friends, parents can approach each “situation” without fear, with an open mind, and most importantly, with a planned strategy.
