Today she talks about how to enjoy those teen years, because, as she mentioned in previous weeks tips, the teen years aren't always all kittens and rainbows. Lisa Sacco Parenting Tip: Enjoying the teen years

Sacco, the mom of two teens herself, recommends parents listen more and talk less; point out the good things teens do; make sure they give them a hug or pat on the back; and don't forget to laugh.

    If you REALLY want to enjoy the teen years, send them to Madagascar until they turn 20. Hope this helps! ;)
