Parenting Teens Self-Assessment

This assessment is a tool that is meant to measure your satisfaction in parenting your teen over the past 4 weeks. This assessment is a tool to help you identify areas where you like to improve in parenting. The scale represents a general interpretation of scores; your individual scores may range, and the interpretation may be unique to your home environment. We encourage you to use the scores to set goals and recognize areas for improvement rather than judgement. You can work with your therapist to identify areas for improvement in parenting.


Parenting Teens

Parenting teens is the process of supporting and guiding adolescents as they grow and develop their identity, independence, and social skills. It involves balancing the needs and interests of teens with the expectations and rules of parents, as well as providing emotional, physical, and financial care.

Parenting teens can be challenging, rewarding, and stressful, as parents and teens may have conflicts, misunderstandings, and disagreements, but also moments of connection, joy, and pride.

Parenting teens requires patience, flexibility, communication, and respect, as well as a willingness to let go and trust teens to make their own decisions and learn from their mistakes. Parenting teens also involves preparing them for adulthood, by helping them develop life skills, academic abilities, career goals, and healthy relationships.
