Parenting Adolescents

Parenting Adolescents

Course Summary

The move from the child to the adult has historically been a tricky journey for both the parent and the adolescent. Adolescence is the time of life when young people begin to move away from being children but are not yet adults. It is a time of significant change and transition on many levels. The adolescent is going through a stage of necessary adaptation as they prepare to leave the safety of home and move out into the complicated world.
