Welcome to Teenhackz

June 9, 2016

Teenhackz is dedicated to helping parents help their teens (and children) to develop into successful adults. We aim to be the ‘one stop shop’ for articles, tools, advice, and videos – anything we can find that is both interesting and insightful in parenting teens.  We want to do the internet surfing for you and bring you all the little gems we come across that result in our own ‘a-ha’ moments.

It is not our intention to critique our generation as parents (after all, we are right there with you). Nor is it our intention to judge todays teens. What we hope to do is offer tidbits of advice that just might make life a little easier for everyone. Some of what we post will have a humorous twist, while other posts will be down right serious business. The remainder will lie somewhere in between. So pick and choose what is useful to you and ignore the rest.

Our first post is at the core of our ‘reason for being’.  Regarding the question: What are the skills every 18 year old needs? Julie Lythcott-Haims, former Standford dean and author of NYT bestseller How to Raise an Adult, addresses some of the biggest issues.
