Student Handout for Parents

How Much Do You Know About Your Child?

This exercise is designed to stimulate conversation between parents and their teens. Please complete the following questions about your son/daughter. Have your teen complete the accompanying sheet, "How Much Do You Know About Your Parents?" (see the Parent Notebook contents). After you complete this handout, exchange sheets with your child. Ask your teenager to help make corrections. Remember, your children started to have brain waves on their own as early as one month after conception. This person is not only your son or daughter, but a person who is developing into an adult.
