The teenage years are a time of great change for both parents and their children. It is a time when children are growing and changing physically, emotionally, and cognitively. It’s also a time when they are exploring their identities and seeking independence.
This can be a challenging time for both parents and teenagers. However, by understanding and communication, parents can help their teenagers navigate these years successfully. Don’t expect your teen to “act your age”. We were all teenagers once upon a time. Try to remember and relate.
