The Teenage Years

The Teenage Years

from about the age of 12 to 20

This is a time of rapid change in your teenager’s life, both physically and emotionally

It’s a time in your life where you’ll probably be challenged as never before, as your child begins to question your authority and move towards the independence of adult life. Even though it may not seem so at times, your teenage child still desperately needs your guidance and loving care.

Parent coaching will help you to:

  • Understand what normal teenage behaviour is (e.g. mood swings, experimentation, privacy)
  • Communicate effectively with your teenager
  • Set appropriate boundaries
  • Develop your teenager’s sense of self-esteem
  • Understand what teenagers need
  • Put consequences in place for inappropriate behaviour
  • Guide your teenager towards healthy independence
