This section is written by parents for parents.  We hope to be able to show you ways you can help yourself and your teenagers cope with problems that may come to light over the next few years as your son/daughter grows and passes into the troubled teenage years.


What is it that turns our teenagers into aliens that we don’t recognise anymore?


We hope to shed a little light on why this may happen, why conflict maybe an ever increasing occurrence, and how easy it is to stop talking and listening to each other.


This is not about telling you what to do with your child; just pointers that may help in you understand your teenager.  Showing you ways you may be able to stop some of the conflicts and misunderstandings within your home.
