Adolescent Problem Solving:
You have survived the 3:00am feeds, the temper tantrums, and the never ending colds and fevers, so why does the word ‘teenager’ make you shudder? Adolescence is a critical time in development. It marks the time in which children separate from their parents and try to redefine themselves as distinct individuals. In the process, many of them push boundaries, assert their independence, and try desperately to fit in with their peers. This can result in conflict with parents, which may result in you trying to hold the reigns of control tighter, or letting go of the reigns all together.
Our psychologists can provide you more information on normal development in adolescence. We will discuss parenting styles, communication strategies, setting boundaries, and methods of resolving conflict. In addition, we will offer suggestions to help nurture your teen’s confidence and self-esteem.
