'Questions?' photo (c) 2008, Valerie Everett - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/Every weekend I like to post a question someone sends in and let you readers have a go at it. This week’s question was asked on my Facebook Page:

How do I encourage a perpetually negative teenager and keep their negativity from rubbing off on you. I really need some new ideas. I’ve done everything I can think of and the negativity continues to flow. She is 13 and I know this is just the beginning of the rough years. It has gotten to a point where she gets in the car after school and I feel myself tense like “brace for impact!!”

What do you think? Let’s help her in the comments!
