Help your teen make smart choices

Tips for parents about how they can motivate their teens to make better choices:

  • Parents should stay involved in their kids lives
  • Parents should trust their kids
  • Kids should feel like they can come talk to their parents
  • Parents should let kids have their way some of the time.
  • Parents shouldn't nag their kids: it doesn't work with teens.

    Tips to help other teens look beyond problems or upsets in their daily:

  • Develop long and short term goals for yourself. Stay focused on them.
  • Learn time management.
  • Stay off the internet for a few hours. Even though it might be tough, you'll be able to finish your homework faster.
  • Try to get at least 6 hours of sleep a night to keep yourself optimistic at school, and off energy drinks.
  • Pursue one fun activity that is different from the other things in your life.

    About Ketaki Shriram:
    Ketaki Shriram has been crafting compelling stories from the tender age of eight, when she completed her first short story for a local book fair. Over the next few years her love of writing grew so intense that by age 10 she had completed her first long form fictional story. By 13 she had completed her first novel, Sorceress of the Himalayas (Crystallius Press, $17.95), which she has now published at age 16. When she is not writing, Ketaki, an outstanding student, is highly active in her high school's student government (as student body president) and is opinion editor on her school newspaper. She is currently working on her next novel.
