“She can’t be the end-all be-all,” Piorkowski says. Not by email or text and certainly not over social media. “At least on the phone, she won’t be embarrassed.” Letting her down respectfully makes the breakup easier on you and her, and it makes you look like a good guy.

Respecting your teen means not treating them like inept babies, but like maturing adults, not talking down to them or humiliating and insulting them.
Get 16 year old Amir, who just got his driver's license, to help his mom with grocery shopping on Saturday's; get 15 year old Jasmine, who loves flowers, to be responsible for the garden and mowing the lawn.
This way, teens will feel a part of the family, included and needed.
