Teenage Years

Teenage Years Leaflet  


Public Health have launched a new leaflet and resources to help support better understanding of the changes that take place during the teenage years and how this can affect adolescent behaviour.

The leaflet doesn’t pretend to have all the answers for struggling parents but offers an insight into the reasons behind the emotional changes that take place and some suggestions about how parents can maintain a positive relationship with their young person. 

Download a copy of the leaflet here: Teenage Years Leaflet.pdf


We have also produced a set of presentation slides to accompany the leaflet that schools can use with staff or parents during transition or parent consultation evenings at secondary school:Teenage Years.pdf
