Supporting Teens in Self-Isolation

Accepting Emotions

Allow teens to express their emotions without trying to “fix” them or negate them.

Offering Choices

Give them a sense of autonomy – i.e. what food to cook, structuring their day schedule, etc etc.

Healthy Habits

Reinforce healthy sleep patterns, eating habits, daily exercise, and overall structure.

Social Networks

Encourage teens to maintain their social networks – friends, coaches, teachers, etc.

Be An Example

Be a good role model – exhibit healthy self-care and coping skills in the home environment.
