These friendships are often a primary source of influence during adolescence, so it is helpful to get to know your teen’s friends, their personalities and their values. Encouraging and supporting friendships in teenagers is a great way to help them develop important life skills needed during adulthood, including tolerance, empathy, care and compassion, problem solving and negotiation.
Teenagers at this time are working out who they are, who they want to be, and how to achieve that. They may seek information and start exploring sexual feelings, emotions, dating, gender identity, and romantic relationships. A strong parent-child relationship based on open communication is important during this time. Teenagers need parents for love and support – staying connected and available means teenagers know they have access to stable, trusted and non-judgemental support.
