The transition from early adolescence to the teenage years can happen before you know it. One minute your child is 10 years old and wants to spend every waking minute with you. Gradually your child starts getting more and more involved with school and friends and then–bam, just like that they’re teens. Granted not all teens are the same, this age transition is about the time that children start to become more opinionated and strong-minded.

To help you survive your child’s teenage years, we’ve put together a list of common issues and how to deal. Check them out:


We hope these tips help you to avoid stressing out during your child’s teenage years, and help you build a strong relationship.
