Getting Teenagers Connected
How does a parent best help their teenager become positively involved with groups and individuals in the wider community. Every parent has to develop their own approach to encouraging and supporting their teenager as they explore new relationships and activities. To be successful, parents should encourage teenagers to be confident, be socially skills, plan ahead, meet their commitments, keep in touch, and take care of others. This program provides some ideas on how to help teenagers get connected. For adult parents/caregivers of children/youth 10 – 15 years.
