Annie Fox for Parents...

Parent Forum

I’m a parenting expert and family coach. Our 21st century tweens and teens are so savvy about pop culture, technology and social media, they may believe they’ve got the emotional and interpersonal part of life figured out too. They don’t. Middle and high school kids need their parents to teach them how to be good people who do the right thing, online and off. Because home is where kids learn the most about love, respect, empathy and resilience, you need 21st century parenting advice you can count on.

Welcome. You’re in the right place.
