Parent Club's guide to

understanding your teen's behaviour

Filter by age group



The teenage years are exciting and full of new opportunities, but they can also be confusing and stressful. Changes to their bodies, surges of hormones, increased expectations, peer pressure and difficulty finding their own identity – it’s a lot to deal with. And all teenagers are different and some will find it harder than others. So it’s important to try and understand what they’re dealing with and how it might be affecting their feelings and emotions. Sometimes they don’t even know why they’re feeling or acting the way they do, which makes it all the harder to understand what they’re going through. But don’t despair – we have lots of information to help you help them.
