Children with divorced parents have to figure out where to stay for the next month or more, feeling guilty to be with the one parent and scared the other might die. Other teens will be missing their proms and graduations. It could be a major disappointment to them.
- Give your teen time to process with you their frustration, sadness, and loss. Then figure out what would really make them feel better - more time with you, walking the dog, writing it all out. Figure out a game plan.
- If you don't have children, offer any sort of connection with a teen, Offer a Skype or FaceTime talk about anything, offer help with homework, or teaching them something.
