She also discusses other vaccines including the meningitis booster. Darlene discusses how to enhance communication with your teen with great tips on what to say, how to say it and even how to start a conversation with your teen. She gives some tips not only to help you communicate better with your teen, but also on how to help them communicate better with you!
