Back Talk is A-Okay

A University of Virginia psychologist says that teenangers who talk back to listening parents are more likely to be successful and to stand up for what they believe in later on in life. I believe it. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2012/01/03/144495483/why-a-teen-who-talks-back-may-have-a-bright-future

Sidenote: I read this article to my parents and they both laughed at the absurdity of encouraging back-talk. But it got us all thinking — could Summer the teenager actually be Summer the prodigal lawyer? Somehow I doubt it. But I don’t doubt that she’ll turn into something amazing when she grows up — if only because she knows what she stands for and is confident enough to not back-down.
