Kids DO Care, Even If They Don’t Show It

kids-do-care-copyFrom Radical Parenting’s interview with Michael J. Bradley, Ed.D.

“The biggest misconception is that teenagers don’t care.  Parents and teens often get in a cycle where they see the worst in each other and teens tend to put on the ‘I-don’t-care-face’ and parents begin to believe that.  Kids are just putting that on, parents need to understand that teens do care.”

Dr. Bradley’s comment echoes what our youth consistently tell us: kids care about many things, and adults often don’t “get it.”
