5. Don’t Snoop

If there’s anything teenagers hate, it’s when their mother snoops. Deep down, your daughter knows that you’re just looking out for her best interests, but what it immediately and most directly communicates is that you don’t trust her, you’re willing to betray her, and you don’t respect her privacy. I know this isn’t true, and you know it isn’t, but the teenage brain works completely differently than an adult mind, so if you truly want to connect with your daughter, avoid snooping at all times!
