The teenage years. . . parents fear this stage, dreading it even while watching their adorable toddlers explore the world. When it arrives, they try to control their teenager, in turn causing their teenager to push back more intensely. It's a natural instinct on both sides: teenagers are changing in every way while trying to assert their independence, and parents are faced with the challenge of coming up with rules, expectations and standards for behavior without a genuine understanding of what is happening. Focusing on creating mutual respect, Darby Fox offers a new model for the parent-child relationship, encouraging parents to let go of the attempt to control their teenager, while at the same time encouraging their teens' independence. Fox appears regularly on-air and in print media including Fox News and CBS and has recently collaborated with Meath Media Group to develop a TV series, Fractured Families with Darby Fox. She’s a pro bono health consultant to the American Red Cross Board of Directors.
