Thank you so much for your comments. Yes, the teenage years can be difficult as young adults seek their path in life, with so many choices that can have lasting effects. Striving for independence yet still needing support from a reliable adult. It's not easy to raise children and there are always new challenges to overcome, especially in a fast-paced, technology-driven society. To help facilitate parent-child relationships and communication, we offer a growing online library of short educational videos on our website (https://teenesteem.org/educational-videos/). Our videos are a wonderful resource to parents who are struggling or who are just looking to enrich their relationship with their kids. I invite you to take a look!
Thank you so much for your kind words! The overarching goal of Teen Esteem programs is to reach as many students and parents as we possibly can over the course of a child’s school years with our message that each individual is valuable, unique, worthy of life, to be respected and loved. Technology dependence, social media influences and fierce academic pressures are taking a toll on the mental and physical health of today’s young people. We strive to combat those negative influences and pressures which are affecting an increasingly younger audience. Youth are our future and we want this future generation to grow up as mentally, physically and emotionally healthy as they possibly can.
