    Teenagers are are changing in many ways both physically and emotionally, therefore it is vital that we parents are understanding of their current situation. If you are close with your daughter I would let her know that you are there for her, offering her support of any kind. Often times teenagers forget that we adults were once in their position too, and by reminding them of this by either telling them a story of your past or trying to relate to them can be greatly helpful.

    Often times teenagers just want to be left alone and have some time to themselves. This is a hard concept to understand but accept but is crucial for both teenagers and parents.
