Dear Parent Coach,
My friend’s very mature, very responsible 16-year-old high school senior and her five friends (most aged 17, one 18) want to stay in a family cabin at Big Bear and spend a ski weekend by themselves.

Signed, A Mother of
Two Boys, Whew! Continue reading “Teens’ Big Bear Cabin Plan Needs Tweaking”
