“I don’t have a clue on how to parent,” says Tom.

“I feel like we’re flying by the seat of our pants,” says Karen.

Tom claims Karen is “passive-aggressive” with the girls, while Karen says Tom’s parenting style is “very loud and forceful.”

“I feel like we don’t support each other, and that’s part of the problem,” says Karen.

The couple agrees that they’re at their “wits’ end” when it comes to their teenage daughter.
