As they get older, children enter a period of transition. They are going to secondary school, making new friends and entering puberty. These things can all be unsettling, and with so many different pressures from multiple directions they need consistent support at home as well as at school to help them feel secure in day-to-day life and to maintain their emotional health.
Links we like:
Coming soon, our mobile resource Teenage Life gives parents and carers the information they need to know on key topics such as mental health, alcohol, drugs, relationships and identity and how to help at school, as well as links to further resources and helpful organisations. Schools can simply provide families with a download link and an access code.
