Eleventh grade is full of pressure. Academics, volunteer activities, leadership opportunities, SAT / ACT prep, college visits, relationship changes – this is a year to practice trust with your changing teen as they’re preparing to leave the house. Stress management, practicing independence, and helping them establish healthy boundaries are all key to this year full of pressure. Choose your battles wisely and remind them you are a safe place to land.
Your teen is asking this year: “How can I matter?” Lean into their interests, their passions, and the things they notice are broken about the world around them. How can they make a difference? How can they contribute rather than only critique?
