At this age, the child you’ve loved and known so well can start to seem like a completely different person. The first thing you can do to help is: remember that’s normal!

Use art, movies, books, and stories as ways to jumpstart conversations about difficult topics or talk about them a little more indirectly

Remember that a hug in a hard moment often says more than the best advice.
