Adolescence is a unique period of time during which a young person develops into an adult and forms an identity. Puberty involves a lot of hormonal, physical, cognitive, and social changes which can be difficult for parents to understand. It might be particularly challenging for expat parents whose children deal with several cultural influences in this sensitive period of identity formation. This talk is about understanding what our adolescent children go through and how to adjust our parenting to meet their needs more effectively.
