“Adolescence is an incredible and unique period of life”, says Dr Dan Siegel (author of Brainstorm: The power and purpose of the teenage brain). It could also be said that parenting an adolescent is an incredible and unique period of life!! When you’re in the midst of it all… the challenges, the confrontations, the worry, the despair even… it can be hard to see it this way.

Parents of teenagers can be dramatic, emotional, influenced heavily by society’s expectations, risk-averse and non-conforming toward adolescent viewpoints!
