Why Teenagers Reject Parents' Solutions to Their Problems

Teens and adolescents may just need a venting outlet and will feel better simply by articulating their worries and problems.
Adults can provide them with mental space by listening to them without interrupting, letting them sort, survey and organize their thoughts.
