How does disciplining in private help teens behave?

ANSWER

Teenagers are often sensitive of how they appear to others, so they may overreact or feel ashamed if you discipline them in public. The teen years can be tough for any kid, so be gentle and understanding. Talk with them about any issues they're having.
