April is Child Abuse Prevention Month - Video Series: How to Talk to Teens

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month - Teen Voices; teen with cell phone - banner graphic

Talking to teens can be tough. In this video series, teens share the meanings of some lingo, and provide a chance to laugh at some of the mistakes parents can make when trying to communicate in their language. We would like to thank these Fairfax County teenagers for their help in making this video!
