Adolescence and teen years for our technologically empowered Gen Z can be a challenging time for them and their parents. This is a major transition period in their lives and a crucial time in their development. They are vulnerable. They are starting to seek their identity – their sense of themselves. Life is thrown off-balance because of the physical, mental and emotional changes they are experiencing. In addition to this, they now have to deal with the uncertainty and fear due to the current Covid-19 situation.
Bumps, No Boulders
Mention being a parent of this age-group and other adults see images of bedrooms, in which lost homework assignments share floor space with potato chip wrappers and grubby sweatpants. But a parent’s concerns are deeper. They worry about the problems Gen Z face: rocky emotions, rebellion, peer pressure, low motivation, drugs, alcohol, and teen pregnancies.
It’s true that this age-group can be frustrating, challenging, and can test a parent’s patience. Yet this same generation can be funny, curious, imaginative, and eager to learn. As research confirms, most of Gen Z runs into bumps, but no boulders.
The journey through these years is easier when parents, families, and caregivers give them support and guidance.
