What to Do When Your Teen Starts to Drift and Disconnect


This Sunday’s episode of For the Defense with Columbus Attorney Brad Koffel features a conversation with psychologist Dr. Andy Erkis and in-home therapist Emily Cohen about the gap between parents today and their teenage children, as well as the challenges of connecting with teens who may find themselves increasingly distracted, depressed, or drifting toward problems, crime, and the court system.

Though conflict and disconnect between different generations isn’t a new issue, it is one many believe may be growing. Attorney Koffel shares his own insight on the potential issue, having represented numerous teens, parents, and families in various high school and college cases, and speaks with Dr. Erkis and Emily Coen about what parents can do when their teen starts to drift and disconnect.
