Understanding the Stages of Adolescence
Adolescence includes some big changes that are sometimes hard to accept for both the parents and the child.
From the way our body looks to the way we see the world, every little aspect of one's life will change when going through adolescence, and this can cause anxiety for the whole family.
But, how can we help a child during adolescence?
To get on a good start, we have to understand that adolescence has different stages and each one brings their own different necessities and struggles. Once we identify the stage the child is going through, we can start preparing ourselves as a parent to help them and give them the room they need for the upcoming growd.
In this episode, we bring you an interview with Dr. Carl Pickhardt where he explains the different stages of adolescence and what changes and struggles you as a parent will be able to find when helping your child through this crucial phase of life.
