Q: My Teen Is Increasingly Isolated. How Can I Help Foster Social Connections?

Q: “My son seems much less engaged in his life and with us since the pandemic started. He spends most of his free time in his room on TikTok or playing games on his phone.

How can I help him practice and keep up his social skills during social isolation?”A: Adolescents are trying to figure out who they are, where they belong, and what’s most important to them. These tasks are often aided by engaging with other people.

Interacting with peers allows them to try on different identities or personas to develop a sense of self. During the pandemic and its social isolation, parents are noticing that teens with ADHD are spending a lot of time in their rooms, don’t come down for meals, and aren’t staying connected with peers as they did before.
