Tips for Teens on Life and Social Success: Being a teenager isn’t always easy, and friendships and relationships can be especially challenging for some teens at a time when finding a friend group is incredibly important. This book makes the social journey through the teenage years an easier one. This time in life can feel both exciting and difficult. There are some challenges that every teen experiences. These include: • Changing Brains and Changing Bodies • Strong Emotions (including Anxiety and Anger) • Understanding Yourself and Dealing with Peer Pressure • Social Awkwardness and Changing Friendships • Barriers to Social Success (Shyness, Impulsivity, etc.) We know from our experience as social coaches that making new friends and meeting people can be difficult, but it’s possible for everyone. Sometimes a teen needs a little social skills support or advice to make that happen.
