Raising a Teenager in Lebanon. Are you ready for it?

“The Future of our world lies in the hands of our children. And how we raise, discipline and teach them will determine our world tomorrow” – excerpt from Dr. Kaldani’s presentation at BMC 23/11/2016

The most crucial, turbulent and confusing time in a child’s growth are the TEEN years – that starts as early as 11 years until they turn around 21 years old. 

Emotionally and physically they are growing – no longer Children … but not yet Adults….


In a Lebanese survey on adolescents (WHO, MOPH, AUBMC)

  • 1 in 4 suffer from an emotional behavior disorder
  • Only 6% of those who need a treatment receive it
  • 1 in 5 had an alcoholic drink in the past month
  • 15% are at risk of being overweight
  • Over 30% say they have been bullied
  • 20% smoke a cigarette or narguile

Ok, keep calm super mama …. be proactive and ready is the best thing you can do to help your child.

Be their friend, but BE THEIR PARENT FIRST! 

They have so many questions, as their body changes and sometimes they can’t talk to you about it, no matter how close you think you are. They may feel more comfortable talking to a doctor.

Help is on the way!

As babies, toddlers and children we take them to the doctor for checkups often. But once the vaccinations end and they “grow up” – doctor’s visits become less and less.

But does that mean they stopped growing or we don’t need to check if they are on the right track (emotionally and physically)

Bellevue Medical Center has created an Adolescent Clinic. Call +961 1 682666 Hotline 1565

As part of its community work and interest in adolescent health issues, Bellevue Medical Center (BMC) conducted an awareness campaign, aiming to engage Lebanese adolescents in their own care, and increase their health awareness.

????????????????????????????????????

As part of the campaign, BMC doctors’ team, specialized in adolescent medicine, visited schools to address the health-related topics adolescents encounter nowadays.

The campaign -which will stretch in the coming year- also addresses parents of adolescents to improve their understanding of teens.
