Parent – adolescent conflict

Parent – adolescent conflict

Adolescence is a stage characterized by many changes and in all areas, physical, cognitive, emotional, and attitudes. It is the time between childhood and young adulthood, not an easy stage. As a result, it requires that parents are more aware of it and make changes themselves to treat their son or daughter as an adolescent and not as a child.

Maintaining a good relationship with your adolescent will lower the probability of behavior problems, smoking, abuse of alcohol, or getting into fights.

The following are common presentations for Mediation between parents and teens:
