Teenage Years Can be Turbulent Times
So much of our children’s lives take place away from their parents. This is a natural occurrence, as it’s part of their growing independence; 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯.
The teenage years can be turbulent times, with many new stresses and challenges along the way. Spending more time talking to friends and less time talking to parents is a totally normal part of teenagers establishing that independence.

If you can find a way to consistently talk to your teen, it shows that you are interested in their life and that you care about how they are thinking and feeling. This also provides a vital balance against the uncertainties and insecurities they can face when they are away from home.
