The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Oct 13, 2020

There is a great deal of uncertainty in the world at the minute; and our kids are bearing the brunt of this. They have been away from school for many months - and now they are entering an environment that should feel familiar - and yet it’s not; because the education system has been given a bit of an overhaul because of COVID.

Taking it one step further, our students are struggling to adjust to university & college life that doesn’t even compare to that of last year.


In this episode, we are discussing how our teenagers are adjusting - and how we can support them through this process.

It’s not necessarily the big things - it’s the little things that bring us joy … a soft blanket and the first drink of coffee in the morning.
It’s so important for parents to watch our words. We need to give them thoughts that serve them better.
