Youth activities help teens gain independence with less family conflict

Youth activities help teens gain independence with less family conflict

Organized youth activities help teens develop independence without the conflict and distancing from their families that parents have come to anticipate during adolescence, says a new University of Illinois study.

"Participation in these groups can make the teen passage smoother for everyone," said Reed Larson, the Pampered Chef Ltd. Endowed Chair in Family Resiliency at the U of I. "When parents negotiate teen independence around such issues as going to parties, messy rooms, or the choice of a girlfriend or boyfriend, it's rarely a win-win situation."
