Teens

Adolescence can be a challenging time.

The teenage years are a time of excitement but also challenges. Your child is developing an identity, beginning to spend more and more time with friends and facing some difficult choices on their own. Don’t worry; your help as a parent is needed just as much as it was in the toddler years.
