You're trying to stay connected to your teen and support them as best you can, but they're irritable, argumentative, and pulling back more than they ever have.

You want to help and support your teen, but it seems like no matter what you say, they disagree or don't respond at all. You know that they need to talk to someone, and it's hard to admit that maybe it's better for them to talk to someone else.

Struggling and having difficulty managing their emotions and not having the coping skills to deal with their situation.

You want your teen to find some peace and feel more grounded with all the changes they're experiencing. You want them to develop the tools to navigate peer pressure and improve their self-esteem and self confidence.
