The teenage years can be a challenging time for many parents. Even children who were quite easy going in their younger years can almost transform overnight! Teenagers want to become more independent from their parents just at a time when the dangers they can be exposed to increase and parents expect them to be more responsible. Many parents desperately wonder how to help your teenager deal with this time in their life.
It can be a scary and frustrating time for parents and teens can feel misunderstood, angry and detached! This session will firstly consider new research into the changes going on in a teenager’s brain and then explore how parents can communicate effectively with teens to really stay connected, have a close relationship and at the same time make boundaries work
