With growth comes a certain degree of conflict, and therefore, life for adolescents and their families can be a turbulent period.
What is it?
Any parent of a teenager knows that there are a lot of emotional ups and downs. With the pressures of school, social lives, and the general confusion that comes with growing up, it’s no wonder they can get a little overwhelmed. Adolescence is often a transitional developmental period associated with growth and conflict. This is when we really begin to develop our sense of self, emerge as individuals, and move closer to determining who we are and how we fit into the world. Pressure from peers, school, family, and social media all pile on and can feel overwhelming for teens. In the midst of all of this, our capacity for reasoning and thinking through things rationally is continuing to develop through adolescence. From a biological standpoint, it’s natural for teens to respond emotionally and at times act impulsively.
