Adolescence is fraught with changes! Bodies are changing, there are new emotions, struggles with self esteem. Fearing rejection; craving acceptance.
As parents, we remember that time in life all too well.
Mood swings happen to males and females, they are normal, and they can be controlled. Here are a few messages parents can give their teens to help them cope:
1. Talk to someone
2. Don't react immediately
5. Release Stress
Parents you are your child's best advocate. When they do come to you, be ready with the door open.
