Family, friends and relationships

The importance of family relationships and friendships for young people

How do friendship problems and sibling relationships affect young people’s self-esteem? How will your own mother child or father child relationship help your child's confidence? Use our articles and activities to address their concerns and bring you closer together.

As your child grows up, their relationships with friends and family will influence their sense of self-worth enormously. As their parent, you'll be a huge influence on their ideas, values and beliefs, and play a crucial role in helping them develop healthy, positive behaviours. 

Our articles and activities are perfect for any family with teenagers and pre-teens, helping you open up communication around body image and self-confidence. Use them to break a cycle of poor self-esteem or a preoccupation with appearance.
