A YMCA of the USA poll commissioned for the White House Conference shows that, despite positive trends, parents are anxious about the well-being of their teenagers rating drugs, alcohol, and violence among their top concerns. By contrast, teenagers rate "not having enough time together" with parents and education as their top issues. The poll reveals that: many families are unable to eat meals together more than a few times a week; many teens watch television and surf the Internet without parental supervision; and many parents wish they had more quality time with their teens.
