Ep 99: Teen Friendships

Friendships can be hard at any time, however when you’re also juggling a new school, raging hormones, and working out who you are it can feel like a whole new ball-game. I’ll share how we can support teens to build their friendships, how to spot an unhealthy friendship and ways we can support a shy / anxious teen to make friends. Whilst the focus is on the specific challenges teens face, the advice holds true for any age child.

Here are the highlights:

(03:02) Keep the line of communication open
(07:37) How to recognise the different types of friendship
(12:37) An unhealthy or a toxic relationship?
(21:38) Supporting a shy teenager
(23:40) Internal back chat can be crippling
(26:11) Help your children move forward
