Can I Ask My Teen To Move Out Of Home?

This week on Help! I Have A Teenager, we address a scary dilemma from a parent; her teenage son is becoming aggressive and she's worried about her safety. So can you ask your teen to move out of home in this situation, or is there a better solution?

Plus, Ginni and Jo discuss what to do if your teen doesn't have much of an appetite, or is a picky eater.
