The Teenager phase

Thirteen to nineteen is a key transition period occurring in all human beings. From being a kid thinking about school, play and seeking approval from parents, one tries to enter into the path of independence and freedom. This is the time when physical, psychological and emotional changes happen significantly.

A teenager like you is trying to break the boundaries of childhood to become an adolescent. Puberty comes at the same stage with raging hormones to make difficult feelings harder. You may be susceptible to a variety of influences, comparisons giving rise to lower self-esteem and low self-confidence. Peer pressure can cause addiction, depression and anxiety. Varying interests gives uncertainty about where you want to go. Totally, you may be at a loss about knowing yourself and where life can lead you.

A teenager support can do wonders for you

At a support group, you will have members sailing through the same boat. It will make you realise that you are not the only one handling difficulty at this stage.
