In this episode, Roy responds to a question from a parent: “How do I get my teen to do what they don’t want to do?” Roy explores the various factors involved in both the parent(s)’ asking of the question and the teenager’s refusal to do something the parent wants them to do. Roy examines the value of the adage “choose your battles” and how it applies to raising teens not as older children but as young adults. Roy has established Today’s Teenager as a non-profit organization dedicated to covering the expenses of therapy sessions and other mental health services for teens and families that would otherwise be unable to afford them.
