Are you wondering how it’s possible that your previously even-keeled kid now appears to change moods throughout the day like a chameleon changes it’s colors?
In the 21st century, there’s more complexity than ever to the teen years. New challenges arise in an era of unprecedented access to technology that your teenager is using to connect with his or her peers (texting, Facebook, on-line chats) and teenagers are bombarded with media images of how they should look, dress, and act. Identity and coping mechanisms (whether healthy or not) really take shape during the teen years. Staying connected to family is as important as ever for your teen.
I work with families to explore solutions and communication strategies that foster healthy teen and parent relationships.
