The Set Up
Do you ever feel like you got set up by your teenager? Did she ask you something that she very well knows you will say "no" to? Instead of always looking like the bad guy and merely saying "no", you can ask them what they think you will or will not like about their request. This teaches them how to take another person's perspective. Its often good to talk about your rational for your decision but don't get into a long disscusion about it because it just escalates your teenager and draws out the battle. Try to avoid the set up. Good luck:)!
