Parenting teens can be tough. And we know we’re not the only ones who found that information and advice about parenting goes from a deluge to a trickle once your kids hit the teen years.

We know this is partly because as everyone’s teenagers and their friends become more aware of what’s posted online by their parents, privacy – quite rightly – becomes more of an issue.

But it’s so helpful and reassuring to read about and connect with other parents going through similar experiences and in our time at Equipp, we’ve come across some brilliant resources, blogs and social media accounts. We hope sharing some of them here will make a difference.
