Communicating with sons can be a challenging and frustrating process at times, often exacerbated by advances in technology that can result in our sons being distant and withdrawn. It's worth noting that young people are experiencing a society that is constantly changing and one which sees them often struggling to form an identity within a world that is driven by social expectations and the need to fit in. This section provides a selection of practical tips and guides to help engage with and support your son through his teenage years. It must be noted that every parent has the right to raise their children as they see fit and each section is only there to stimulate thought and provide some guidance when things get tough.
