Supporting your adolescent
Welcome to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Local Safeguarding Children’s Partnerships (LSCPs) Parent and Carer Adolescent Toolkit.
Adolescence is the phase of life between childhood and adulthood and is a time of major transition physically, emotionally and socially. This toolkit has been designed with parents and carers, to provide information and help on a range of topics that can sometimes affect pre-teens and teenagers as they journey into adulthood.
The subjects featured in the toolkit were chosen specially by parents and carers, and the contents has been carefully compiled by a range of services across both Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
Special thanks to those organisations, services and teams, who all gave their time to develop the toolkit: Hampshire and IOW Children’s Services and Public Health, Isle of Wight CCAMHS, Barnardo’s Isle of Wight Family Centres, Isle of Wight Education Federation (IWEF) and Motiv8 South and Georgia Jones Don’t go with the Flo charities.
