High School Years   


As your miracle teenager enters their high school years, this time can be a whole new chapter for many families and new challenges may emerge

Most learning or developmental difficulties would have been identified in primary school, however new challenges and difficulties can arise at this time, particular around social skills and peer interaction. You are parenting a teen as they explore and discover more about themselves and their future direction.  It is a time that can be challenging as well as extremely rewarding. Open communication and assisting in decision making can help build resilience and set a mutually respectful platform for parent and teenager.

As teenagers become more self aware and self reliant it is a good time to help them understand any possible risks they may encounter in their teenage and entering their adult years due to their early start in life.

Babies born premature, small for their gestational age or babies that have had complications that lead to their NICU/SCN stay run a higher risk of challenges, therefore it’s important to continue watching your child’s progress through their teenage years. 

We are here to help! Miracle Babies Foundation parent information hub Nurture ’E’ – The EEE Impact, is designed to assist you and your family through the high school years.
