Changing Bodies & Emotions
Helping young teens deal with the challenges of growing up and peer pressure

Being a pre-teen is tough, and raising a pre-teen may be just as hard. Your child may be struggling with their changing body and changing emotions. On top of that, new influences and pressures from peers may be challenging how they think about themselves and the decisions they make. Young people at this stage may act like they don’t want any advice from their parents, but the opposite is true. They need their parents’ support and encouragement even more to guide them to make safe and healthy choices. These online tools and resources can help make difficult conversations between parents and their young teens much easier.
