How does having kids involved help teens behave?

ANSWER

As your child matures, let her help set expectations, rewards, and consequences. This empowers her, which may improve her self-esteem and reinforce the idea that she's in charge of her own behavior. This will also help her become more responsible as she moves toward young adulthood.
