So you may have read this headline and thought, yeah right, why would I take advice from a teen on how to parent my teen, they’re just going to tell me all the things they want to do, not what’s actually good for them. Well, you may be pleasantly surprised and come away with some great tips after watching this 5-minute video.

In this video, 13-year-old Lucy Androski gives a teen’s opinion on parenting from stereotypes and experience. She talks about technology, teen emotions, and types of parents, all from a teen’s perspective.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
