Source: American Institute for Cancer Research Help your teen cope with cabin fever The weather outside is frightful. And your teen is less than delightful. That can happen when kids are stuck in the house for days. So how can you help your teen cope with being cooped up — without getting on everyone’s nerves? 1. Help them to stick to a schedule. Even if school’s out or they’re learning from home, they should wake up, exercise, get dressed, and have meals at the same times every day. Kids are reassured by structure. 2. Give your teen some space. It’s natural for teens to seek privacy from their family. Let them carve out their own time for friends, fun projects, listening to music, or just being on their own. 3. Extend your teen’s media time. While your teen is stuck at home, their online time is bound to increase. You can work with them to come up with a plan that is flexible and fair. Let them be part of the planning process so that they’re on board with the solution. 4. Come up with family projects. Let your teen take the lead. They could start a decluttering challenge to gather items to donate. Or they could digitize the family photo albums. Or maybe they’d want to plan a future family vacation. 5. Feed their curiosity. Help your teen find something new to learn about. Maybe you know a good book they haven’t read yet. Or you could help them find online tutorials for skills like drawing, sewing, writing or coding. 6. Help them stay active. If weather permits, a walk or run outside can help burn off energy and lift their mood. If they’re stuck indoors, help them find online workouts. Or they can create their own using items around the house.
