So, do you monitor your children who and what type of people they hanging out with? Usually, parents should keep a closer eye on their children while they are teenagers. It is the most vulnerable time, and they can be easily influenced by peers. It might be the time to mold who they are?

I raised four children and I can tell you from experience that you HAVE to know who your kids are hanging around with, where they are and what they are doing at all times...especially when they are teenagers. You also need to know what their little code words mean. My son and his friends used to talk about "chicken winging" and I paid no attention to it...until they were caught breaking into cars. That's what chicken winging is. I didn't know my son's friends...assumed they were nice kids. They weren't.
