Mixed Messages for Teen Romance?

In her new book, Unsteady, What Every Parent Absolutely Must Know about Teenage Romance, author JeaNette Smith says we send a mixed message, “winking” at boy/girl emotional attachments, while forbidding physical expression. She says it puts pressures on teens they just aren’t ready to handle.

JeaNette G. Smith is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
