Parents can struggle to understand as their relationship with teenage children changes. This information may shed some light on issues including boundaries, sleepovers, alcohol etc..
Teenagers can also experience highs and lows through changes in their lives, both emotionally and physically. You may feel more anxious as your teen becomes more independent and it can become harder to give them advice. Parenting teenagers can be an enjoyable experience with a little bit of preparation and we offer a wealth of information on the different issues you might face.
Many parents find that their children act differently during their teenage years. Read about what may be normal teenage behaviour and what may be something more serious.
