Help your Teenager

Help your teenager transition into a healthy adult.

Once your teenager hits about 15 years of age (and sometimes earlier) they need to start building their own relationship with their GP. You can start this process by going with them to the doctor in their early teens but sitting back quietly so they mostly speak. Then when you think they are ready, wait for them in the waiting room while they see the doctor on their own.

Paying for a consultation can often be a barrier so you can also have a conversation with your teen that if they want to see the doctor anytime that you will reimburse them for their visit –no questions asked.
