Growing teens go through more stress than we give them credit for! Small things that we may take for granted can be huge for them! So, here are some ways to help them cope:โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
1๏ธโƒฃ ๐’๐‹๐„๐„๐! This is essential to their growth and development. Their changing bodies and evolving minds need at least 8-10 hours. ๐Ÿ’ค โฃโฃ

2๏ธโƒฃ ๐…๐จ๐œ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐จ๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ข๐ซ ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐ฌ! In todayโ€™s society, it is so easy to criticize or pick apart someoneโ€™s weaknesses. We need to show our children what makes them special and encourage them in the areas that they can excel at. This can look vastly different from teen to teen. ๐Ÿ’ชโฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
3๏ธโƒฃ ๐‹๐ž๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฆ ๐๐จ ๐ฐ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฒ ๐ž๐ง๐ฃ๐จ๐ฒ! We could all use some more happiness in life! Help your child find a sport, hobby, activity, etc. that they truly love. This gives teens a fun outlet for some โ€œMe Time!โ€ as well as boosts their confidence! ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽฎ ๐Ÿ“š โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
4๏ธโƒฃ ๐„๐ง๐ ๐š๐ ๐ž ๐ข๐ง ๐ฉ๐ก๐ฒ๐ฌ๐ข๐œ๐š๐ฅ ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ! Exercise is one of the BEST ways to relieve stress. Whether itโ€™s a short walk around the block, or a long bike ride, the exercise releases chemicals in the brain that can brighten their mood. ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ›น โฃโฃ
โฃ
5๏ธโƒฃ ๐“๐š๐ฅ๐ค๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฆ. This can seem challenging or daunting at times, but everything feels better once talked through. Learning how to communicate and manage stress is such a great life skill to achieve at a young age. Be a trusted parent or encourage them to find someone who they feel comfortable confiding in that will have their best interest at heart. It is vital that teens have someone more than just their peers to seek advice from.โฃโฃ
