Raising Awareness

My Local News, helps us to raise awareness of the importance of parents understanding their adolescent children:

“The two times in our lives when the brain is going through huge changes are during babyhood and adolescence. Add to these hidden changes the pressures of being an adolescent and young people have an awful lot to cope with. In our experience, relationships between young people and their parents can break down at this crucial stage.

“We want to educate parents on these changes, the pressure on young people and what is ‘typical teenage behaviour. We want to help parents understand that their relationship with their child needs to change at this important time in their child’s development and we think with parents about how best to listen and guide their children and which parenting style works best.”
