Helping Your Teen Cope with Stress and Challenges

Research shows that resilient youth are less likely to experience problems related to substance use, tobacco use, mental health, gang participation, gambling, gaming, or other potentially harmful or unhealthy behaviors, and have improved coping and decision-making skills.

Resilience involves being able to recover from difficulties or change – to function as well as before and then move forward. Many refer to this as "bouncing back" from difficulties or challenges.

Parents can help their teen develop the skills to deal with life’s stressors, avoid problems and become strong, responsible individuals.
