She assured Lorraine that doctors were “getting it under control.’’ In reality, a desperate crisis was about to unfold inside OR 10 at Lahey Clinic in Burlington.Nurse Denise Morin returned three times, Lorraine recalled later.

Amid all that stress, it’s easy for well-meaning adults to make missteps. More often than not, we jump in with earnest questions or suggestions: “Any chance you did something that hurt your friend’s feelings?” or “Would it help if I quizzed you on what you’ve studied so far?” But, despite our best intentions, these efforts often seem to only agitate our … [Read more...] about How to Help Teens Weather Their Emotional Storms

ByLisa Damour Aug. 29, 2018 If you want to start a heated debate, ask a group of parents what they think about using technology to track a teenager’s location.
