How should you respond when your teen comes home late? Wears inappropriate clothes? Is pregnant, or flunking out?

Offering practical “first response” advice, he tells you exactly what to do and what NOT to do in about every scenario you’ll ever face with your kid,from messy rooms and monstrous moods to drug abuse and depression.
