It isn't always easy to be young - neither is it easy to be a parent to a teenager!

Adolescents must cope with big changes in their bodies and feelings. At the same time there are questions of one's future and of finding a way to become independent of one's family. 

Parents need to readjust their parenting skills to support and stay connected to their teenagers. 

Parents may be worried about:

  • How to protect teenagers from leaps too big or early towards adulthood?
  • How to support them in making wise decisions?
  • How to maintain good relationships between parents and teenagers?
  • What you should know as a parent about puberty?
