When to be Concerned About Teens




The best advice Dr. Francisco Medina, Director of Pediatric Emergency Services and Chief of Pediatrics at Homestead Hospital, can give parents is that they be aware of what their children are doing and, if it’s necessary help them quickly.

“Watch if your child of your teenager is moving out of the scene, not talking or disconnecting from his family,” he says.

The specialist also advises if the communication parent-son is not good, it’s urgent to look for help.
