In the first episode of this series, we talked about what to look for and how to understand the changes that your teen may be facing.
This episode is all about establishing a new normal, from sleep habits to understanding what their life will look like. It's easy to think the worse at that age...I definitely did.
I want to encourage you to talk to them, get to know them from the lens of what they're experiencing. Relate to them, especially if you have any type of thyroid condition...it goes a long way.
If your teen has a high amount of stress, say due to their academic load or if they're managing home, school and their athletic life, it's important to help them understand how their bodies change and what impact that will have on their abilities, even if it is short term. Stress management in particular will be incredibly important during this time as well.
