Teen moodiness and mental health

A moody teenager. If you have a teenager in your house, you know what a moody teenager is. I think overreacting to their moodiness is not going to help them with their lives. More importantly, be involved with their lives to participate in the activities you are allowed to participate in, as a teenager, and engage them. Talk to them. Listen to them. If the moods persist, and you have warning signs that something is going on, the first place to go is usually their school. Talk to their teachers. If there are friends of theirs that you are close with, and you feel that you can talk to them; talk to their friends. If there is a house that they hang out at a lot, talk to the parents to see if they are seeing something to help you understand why your child is acting the way that they are acting. If need be, you need to talk to your child about seeing someone and talk to a counselor or family therapist to help you with that.
