This month we are focusing on Preparing for Change
“The only thing that is constant is change.” — Heraclitus, Greek philosopher
Change is a natural, expected part of life. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. While some people thrive on change, most experience some level of discomfort around transitions. And some people really struggle when adjusting to a new situation.
For teens, change can be particularly difficult. Perhaps one of the biggest challenges of teen transitions is that they’re taking place against a backdrop of change. Their bodies are changing, their social hierarchies and norms are changing … even their relationship with you is changing.(AMBRE Associates)
By fostering a responsive, rather than reactive approach, to coping with change, teens can learn how to achieve clarity while navigating the inevitable obstacles of life.
Below are some links that offer strategies that can help your teen cope with change .
