Teenagers, Wellbeing and the Learning Potential website
In a recent survey, 40% of our students reported that they regularly get a good night’s sleep, and 45% reported that they regularly eat breakfast. That means more than half of our students either don’t regularly get a good night’s sleep or don’t eat breakfast or maybe even both! The good news is that 60% reported participating in organised activities which is known to be protective for wellbeing.
There’s lots of research and advice around about parenting teens; if you haven’t seen this, you might find the Australian Government Learning Potential website of interest.
