Welcome to Teen World: A Guide for Parents
Rhode Island Regional Coalitions, 2021
Welcome to a teen’s world! The teen years are a period of intense growth, not only physically but emotionally and intellectually. So it’s completely understandable that, at times, parents may have feelings of confusion, frustration and sometimes being overwhelmed. The core of our mission is to promote the overall health and wellbeing of families in our communities, including support for parents, grandparents and caregivers. The Rhode Island Regional Coalitions created this booklet to provide parents with some useful resources to help them better understand their teen’s world and hopefully make raising healthy kids a little more fun for everyone. Enjoy!
