Teen Counselling Techniques for Parents


According to the Straits Times, “experts have observed a rise in the number of stressed-out children and youth in Singapore. While the demands of school are often blamed, the stress often stems from multiple sources. Some have trouble making friends or being accepted by their peers, and face family problems or have high personal expectations.”

We need to be there for teenagers when they are hurt emotionally, when they are sad and when they are celebrating.
– Associate Professor John Wong, Head of the National University Hospital’s psychological medicine department
