Being a parent of a teenager is no easy task. You thought raising a child was hard, but now you have an adolescent on your hands. The transition into adolescence can be a confusing time for many. Teens often experience the pressure of societal norms and expectations, while finding their own unique identity. They are bombarded from messages by celebrities, and social media, while being confronted with hormonal changes, body image, and other pressures.
As a parent, maybe you are concerned that your teenager is connecting with the “wrong crowd” or being exposed to situations by peers or social media. You might be wondering how to connect with them as you begin to feel a change in your relationship. You notice them wanting more space, or time alone, or with their friends.
