Significance Of Teenage

Teenagehood or adolescence is viewed as “the age of storm and stress,” as also stated by G. S. Hall (1904), which examines three key aspects – conflict with parents, mood disruptions, and behavioral problems. Teenagehood is a period of change, and it is important as the interplay of various catalysts determines if the child will transition into a mature or immature adult. 

The term Adolescence comes from the Latin word adolescence, meaning “to grow” or “to grow to maturity,” elucidating the positive aspects of this amazing, progressive phase of life. Thus, adolescence refers to the development of puberty & physical growth spurts, cognitive maturity, and crucial socio-emotional and sexual development. 

However, adapting to these changes all of a sudden can often lead to confusion or emotional turmoil. Hence, understanding these changes is vital for caregivers, parents, guardians, and teachers. It will empower them to aid their child’s growth and empower them towards positive progressiveness.
