Balance. It's a tough thing to accomplish in life, especially when it comes to helping our teens develop independence. The question we often ask ourselves is, "when should I step in to help my teen, and when should I simply let them figure it out?" 

I'm excited for you to hear my continued conversation with Kelly Monnin, a mom of four who is very involved with her kids, the community, and the school system. Kelly shares some good tips when it comes to this balancing act. In addition, she also shares some ideas that help our teens develop some life skills. I really think you will appreciate her practical insight.
