A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

It’s easy to forget the power of our words—no matter how old we are! As your kids leave for school today, remind them to use their words to build someone else up. Tell them that you’re going to try and do the same thing, too!
Play song wars with your kids in the car this week! You pick the first song to play. Then, have your student pick the next one. Keep taking turns picking songs throughout your drive time, trying to top one another’s song choices as you go.
When’s the last time your family intentionally encouraged each other? During a meal this week, make the time to do just that! Go around the table and have each person say one positive thing about the person sitting to their right.
Share a story about a time that someone used their words either to wreck you or build you up. It’s important that your kids hear your stories so that they believe you can understand the way they feel right now.

On the outside, most young people seem happy-go-lucky, but inside each adolescent is a complex network of potentially explosive pressures. Adolescents with a strong parental and social support system are the least likely to experience the painful effects of the pressures they face. When parents become aware of the typical sources of pressure that kids face, they are better able to provide their kids encouragement and support. Here are five common pressures adolescents face:
1. The Pressure to be Perfect.
Teens repeatedly talk about their parents wanting them to be perfect, particularly in in the areas of behavior and school. No kid is perfect and when they fall short of their parents’ expectations, they feel more pressure.
2. The Pressure to Succeed.
