Parenting Teenagers - Some Useful Tips

Please see below some useful tips in parenting/working with teenagers who are experiencing wellbeing & mental health concerns (courtesy of Headspace)

Some useful advice on:

  • Mistakes happen – learning from situations, learning lessons in life
  • What affects teenage mental health (biological factors/early experiences/self-esteem/current circumstances)
  • Helping teenagers you are worried about (show empathy/take an interest in them/focus on their strengths & successes)
  • Important things to remember about teenagers (need a sense of identity & belonging, are searching for independence yet still need support)

Parenting teenagers above all, involves bucket loads of patience and unconditional love.
