Assisting you to learn how to:

  • be better at talking with your teen
  • be better at understanding your teen
  • help your teen learn to manage their emotions
  • help to prevent behaviour problems in your teen
  • teach your teen to deal with conflict

 Tuning in to Teens shows you how to help your teen develop emotional intelligence. Adolescents with higher emotional intelligence:

  • are more aware, assertive and strong in situations of peer pressure
  • have greater success with making friends and are more able to manage conflict with peers
  • are more able to cope when upset or angry
  • have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties
  • have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults
  • have greater career success

Emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ.
