As a tutor and mentor for the past 16 years, Chelsey has learned that teenage girls feel profoundly misunderstood and alienated. But with the right approach and attitude, parents and other adults can learn to connect with teens and forge a meaningful, open dialogue that expands empathy and understanding.
