My Favorite Teen Parenting Advice Resource

This post is made possible with support from the Center for Parent and Teen Communication, part of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. All opinions are my own.

Last year I was introduced to the Center for Parent and Teen Communication, an organization that provides parents with strategies to support healthy family relationships. Their website is filled with snackable teen parenting tips. The website has been an invaluable resource for me, especially during the last year when we’ve had to navigate so many difficult situations and changes as a family. 

The CPTC’s 100-word newsletter is filled with golden nuggets of teen parenting advice. Their articles have really helped me better understand and communicate with my teens, and I love that I get all that valuable information right in my inbox. If you have teens at home, I have no doubt you will find this newsletter helpful. You can sign up HERE.

1-minute teen parenting advice

My new favorite parenting resources are the CPTC’s 1-Minute Parenting Tip animations. These 1-minute videos are so easy to watch and understand! My daughter has been struggling with school, and my first instinct was to swoop in and help her. After watching the “Inquire and Listen” video, I changed my approach and let her know that I was there to help whenever SHE needed it. Later that day, she came to me and shared what happened. It felt so good to see her reach out. The video helped me realize I need to give her time and space to process. 

Filled with easy-to-implement advice, you can check out the 1-Minute Parenting Tip animations HERE! You’re sure to find some valuable tips that could make a huge, positive difference in how you connect and communicate with your teens!

  1. This sounds really interesting. I’m going to have to take a look at this. Sounds like it would have some great info.

  2. I understand wanting to swoop in and help save the day. Recently stopped myself from doing that with my son’s math class where he is struggling a bit. He just did well on a test so I’m glad we have an upswing here. 😉

  3. Smart! I am glad that app helped you determine how to understand and handle the situation! I know as a parent myself, I am going to allow my children to determine what the best course of action is for them, and then if they need me, I will let them know, I am there for them always! The last thing I ever will or want to be is a helicopter mom!

  4. I am going to check out this CPTC’s 1-Minute Parenting Tip animations. It looks really helpful especially for moms who are struggling.
