Connections: The Available Parent


Parents might find it a frustrating challenge when they try to understand their teenagers. John Duffy's book, The Available Parent, attempts to bridge that lack of understanding, underscoring the need for parents to be available to their children. As Duffy says, a parent can be sitting next to a teenager and still not be really available. When a child feels that distance, problems can worsen. Duffy is in Rochester as a guest of the Pittsford PTSA. In studio:
