Teenager

Raising teenagers can be challenging in a multitude of ways. It’s not easy dealing with teenagers when they themselves are often dealing with their own changes. So welcome to our teenager section where you can get all the latest news, advice and parenting tips for teenagers. Meet other mums across Australia and share your stories and thoughts on raising teenagers. Our Questions & Answers page allows you to ask other mums questions about motherhood and understanding and living with teenagers. Visit our content sections for each stage of your child’s life, from pregnancy to teenage years, while our ‘Stuff for Mums’ area provides useful advice on everyday life issues like work, money, technology, health, fashion, travel, shopping, recipes and lots more. Issues you might otherwise forego but shouldn’t need to when you’re raising teenagers. At Motherpedia we also care about the broad community of mothers doing it tough out there, and so we regularly contribute to charities that assist mums in need of a helping hand.

Read up on the most up to date parenting tips for teenagers at Motherpedia. Stay in touch with the latest news, tips, discounts and free samples by subscribing to our regular newsletter. You can also ‘Follow’ us on Twitter or ‘Like’ us on Facebook.
