Video: Teenage independence

9-18 years

In this short video, parents and teenagers separately discuss what age is appropriate for teenagers to do different independent activities. These include getting to a friend’s house on public transport, going on an outing with friends, and catching the bus to school.

Parents talk about their concerns with increasing independence and the importance of staying in touch with what their children are doing.
