11 - 17 years old

Transitioning years…

 

A time of great change physically, emotionally, and socially.  They are learning to take on new responsibilities at school and home. They are no longer you little girl or boy, but they still need you! While your teen may be showing increased independence and skill building, they rely on you to help them with all of the new challenges they face.
