Don't know where to start with your teen and their relationship? It can be difficult to know what your teen is experiencing in their relationships. We see their moods change rapidly and their behaviors swing wildly. As parents, how do we talk to our teens about sensitive topics, like physical violence or sexual abuse?
The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence has provided a resource for parents called Raising Respect. It's an app that empowers parents with information on how to approach such sensitive topics with their teens. Topics include:
Healthy Relationships Mindful Parenting Sex and Pregnancy Drugs, Alcohol, and Relationships Relationships in Media Gender and Sexual Orientation Communication Social Media and Cellphones Self-care for Parents Self-care for Adolescents
