Does it matter if your kids listen to you? When adolescents reject mom’s advice, it still helps them cope
College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Parents are often eager to give their adolescent children advice about school problems, but they may find that youth are less than receptive to their words of wisdom. However, kids who don’t seem to listen to their parents may still benefit from their input, a new study from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign shows.
