Frequently Asked Questions

"This has been absolutely amazing. So many great ideas for these unusual circumstances. The summit has put my mind at ease and now I look forward to the holidays with more confidence!"

Taking the time to view the presentations was a good way to focus on preparing for the holidays.  While it looks very different for our family this year, I feel better equipped to handle this season and will likely use strategies learned all year long!

The holiday summit to me was like a Las Vegas style buffet.   It had the most awesome of selections and each helping was better and made you more full but still wanting more.

Meet the Founders

Your Teen developed out of personal passion but grew out of universal need. Founders Stephanie Silverman and Susan Borison saw that their own parenting concerns and fears resonated with most everyone they polled. As they wondered whether their teens’ struggles were normal, or whether their parenting woes were typical, other parents were dealing with the same insecurities. And so, Your Teen Media was born.

14 years later, we’re pleased to say that Your Teen is a leading source for parents seeking high-quality information and advice about raising teenagers. We've also built a robust and engaged parenting community. Parenting teenagers is hard, and Your Teen Media strives make parents feel less alone. 

2020 Holiday Rescue: A Summit for Parents is yet another way we're offering support for parents. In a year that has had so many challenges, we all want to head into the holidays with some solid ideas and a positive mindset.
