Losing trust in your kids is something all parents face, whether they have a 7 year old or a 17 year old. There are countless instances in which parent-child trust can be damaged.

Perhaps they said they were sleeping over at their best friend’s house but instead went to a concert with a different crowd? Both situations imply a breach of trust and can cause hurt, for you and for your guilty child. So how do you take a breach of trust and turn it into a teachable moment?
