Description

Janet and Greg are finding life with a teenager difficult. They used to do more with their son, Jeff, 15, but now he is busy with his own friends and activities. If he needs to be picked up from practice, he just texts. He often argues with them about rules and always seems to need money for something. They are dreading the time when Jeff’s younger brother and sister also will be teens.
