Family life

As your child goes through adolescence it can be a challenging time for both you and your teenager as the family dynamic changes.

It can be an anxious time for teenagers with lots of changes, developments with their body, bullying and a new hunt for independence. As teenagers start to make their own decisions and have more independence your relationship will change and the atmosphere at home can shift. As a parent or carer, you will experience the fine balance between offering support whilst letting your teenager (safely) learn from the consequences of their actions. 

There can be lots of other things going on in your family as well as adolescence. Whatever you and your family are going through remember there is lots of support available. 

Use the links below to find trusted support on this topic.  Additionally, encourage your child to use the Health Topic pages for their relevant age group here on Teen Health.  They can find more tips and resources to help them.
