Advice for the parents and carers of teenagers (Anna Freud Centre)

The teenage years are both exciting and challenging to parent and carers. It can be hard to know whether a teenager’s feelings and behaviour are normal or becoming a problem.

Anna Freud Centre’s child mental health experts have written a leaflet to provide simple advice and guidance to parents and carers about how to make conversations about their child’s feelings part of everyday life. Please click here to view.
