Find out how to cope with heated arguments with your teenager, and what to do if they become violent. It's useful to remember that your own behaviour can improve or worsen an aggressive situation, so it's important to be a good role model for your teen.

Many youth not only experience the usual challenges of transitioning from childhood to adulthood but also are working through unique challenges associated with military life, such as frequent moves and being away from their friends and family through Permanent Change of Station PCS and deployments. Connecting to people is what makes the difference between a smooth transition and a rocky one, so the Navy offers sponsorship programs at each installation. Youth Sponsorship, aimed primarily at preteens and teens, helps youth integrate into a new community of friends and mentors when they move to a new installation. CYP Professionals identify incoming youth, connect them with youth currently on the installation, and provide information about programs and activities on the installation and in the surrounding community.
