The teen years can be a difficult time for both your teen and you. But, you can also experience times of pride, laughter, and closeness. The world changes so quickly that you may not recognize the problems your teen may face. Some issues teens face may be choices that involve alcohol and drugs, high-risk sexual behavior, or violence. Some teens may also be dealing with stress or depression.
You can help your teen make good choices by understanding teen issues. Ask your teen to tell you about anything that bothers him or her, such as bullying or a concern about a friend's actions. And have ongoing talks about your teen's everyday activities.
