To understand it properly, one needs to be aware about what happens during this phase. Here’s a list of some of the important things that happen during teenage:
1. Physical growth
It seems like all of a sudden kids shoot up and become taller. Puberty comes knocking and brings with it a host of physical changes. Children become ready to enter adulthood.
2. Mood swings
The drastic hormonal changes that come along with puberty make teenagers moody and temperamental. Added to it is the emotional effect brought about by this transition. All this accounts for mood changes in your teenager.
3. Confusion and disorientation
Teenagers can often end up being confused and disoriented. This is because everything around them seems to change rather suddenly. Proper counseling is needed to bring about right emotional responses to the physical, physiological and psychological changes experienced by them.
You may find your obedient child turning suddenly into this rebel teenager. It is normal. As they are growing up, they are trying to make sense of the world around them.
