5 Ways You Can Help

  1. Build structured private time with your child; take a walk or have a quiet meal together. It's extremely important that your child knows you are there for him.
  2. Give him responsibility. Put him in charge of the pantry: He can help plan meals, keep a grocery list, check the papers for sales, do much of the shopping.
  3. Communicate with your child as often as you can. If he doesn't particularly feel like talking at the moment, leave notes for him.
  4. Stay involved in his school and at least stay in touch with his teachers via notes or phone calls.
  5. Give him breathing space; it's not necessary or appropriate to be involved in every aspect of his life. He needs independence.
