What once was a close bond with your child has turned cold and distant. This can leave you feeling frustrated and alone, wondering if you have done something wrong. The teenage years can be some of the most challenging years you face. Teens today are dealing with more trauma than in years past. Additionally, social media and the comparison trap may leave very little room for healthy connection and growth. Some moodiness and anxiety is normal at this age. However, when these issues begin to impact school functioning, relationship choices, and self worth, it may be time to seek professional help.
