Dear Dr. Nagpal,
Our 16 year old daughter is becoming increasingly distant from our family, spending most of her time with her boyfriend.  She has lost interest in athletics (at which she once excelled) and her schoolwork and grades are deteriorating.  Now she wants to get a tattoo but my wife and I think she's too young. Do you have any
suggestions? Thank you,Geoff
