You can see it their face. You can sense it in their eyes. The non-verbal signals are a dead-giveaway to the fear and denial towards their teen’s “Extra Curricular” activities: drugs, sex, cyber- inappropriate or dangerous behaviors, and other common teenage criminal acts. “Oh no, my boy would never do...
