Show Notes

Studies are showing that the social restrictions of the COVID pandemic have been especially harmful for teens; even prior to the pandemic, mental illness and teens have been a large public health concern. It’s a time in one’s life that is full of growth and development, making a caring, nonjudgmental, support system crucial. We know that it can be challenging for parents and caregivers to know how to support a teenager, especially while juggling all of life’s other demands. KCSARC’s Family Services Specialists and Preventionist discuss how parents can support the teens in their lives, what’s typical adolescent behavior, and what could be a concerning red-flag.

Tangible Takeaway: The “What if?” Game

What if you could spend the day with your favorite celebrity—who would you choose? The “What if?” game is a helpful tool that KCSARC’s Family Services Specialists recommend to parents and caregivers (and also use themselves, as parents!) to start conversations and to build strong decision-making skills. You can use scenarios and hypotheticals to have fun, silly conversations, or more serious talks about interpersonal skills and preparation for any challenging issues your child may encounter. Check out https://www.kcsarc.org/100conversations for more useful tools on how to start conversations with young folks about healthy relationships and sexuality.
