Ep. 94 | How Much Should I Push My Child?

How much should you help your child during high school? Which kind of parent are you?

Show Notes:

In this episode, I walk through three parenting strategies when it comes to handling your teen in high school: (1) hand's-off, (2) helicopter, or (3) hedger.  Each style has its own advantages and disadvantages. Figure out what style you use and whether it's the best way to go.
