Regardless of what your child wants to become (or what you want him/her to become), you mustn’t forget about the psychological aspect.
Positive psychology for teenagers aims to support their well-being, resilience and positive development during this crucial stage of life. Teenagers face unique challenges as they navigate physical, emotional and social changes. Positive psychology principles can help teenagers build positive habits, cope with stress and develop a positive outlook on life.
