Be aware that it is normal for you as a parent to get involved and that the situation affects you and your family.
Also remember that your child is in a learning phase of life.
Don’t make judgments about your child’s behaviour. Remain open to being a confidant(e), as your child will need all the support you can provide.
Your child may not be comfortable discussing the situation in which he or she is embroiled. Offer the help of a trusted and significant adult so that the discussion is conducive to confidence and that your child is open to help.
There are many resources available to help your child learn about the situation he or she is currently experiencing. We invite you to consult the ” Teenagers ” tab for more details.

Trust your child.
Your child needs your help and support.
