Being a teenager should be a fun and exciting time of self-discovery. However, for many, this major transitional phase can be challenging and painful for your teenager-and a constant cause of concern for you.
We all want the brightest future for our children but sadly, many teens get trapped in a cycle of limiting self-beliefs and dysfunctional relationships. The affects can be far-reaching: for your teen, you and your family.
So how best to support them to stay on track and achieve success in their own right?
Support them in the right way, at the right time
Some of the most challenging pressures relate to:
- VCE and exam stress
- Transition to further study or career
- Body image
- Bullying and/or low resilience
As a qualified coach and trainer, I have extensive experience in working with young people of varied ages. Surprisingly, in many circumstances there aren’t any ‘significant’ signs of stress.
Teens can often ‘fall under the radar’ until stress and anxiety takes its toll.
