The teenage years are a time of transition and can be challenging for both teenagers and parents.Parentalk – The Teenage Years is all about helping mums and dads do the best job they can as they navigate these years with their teenager. It’s a relaxed, informal course giving you the opportunity to talk about the day-to-day challenges you face, as well as sharing the things that are going well.
Confusion, fear, anxiety and bewilderment are common emotions experienced by parents of teenagers. The same emotions are experienced by teenagers themselves. The teenage years area time of turmoil and transition for both child and parents, as both have to learn a new way of relating to each other and the world. During this transition stage, a teenager may not be ‘lovable’ but they need to know they are loved. As parents we need to understand what is ‘normal’ adolescent behaviour and what is happening to them – physically, emotionally and mentally.
