Adolescence years serve as a bridge between childhood to adulthood. Although in reality it involves just a few years, it could potentially encompass the most turbulent, confusing, and chaotic phase in our development! This is the stage where so much has to be figured out and incorporated into our personality. The changes occur on every level from physical, cognitive, emotional, to social and behavioral; each area becoming highly complex and interconnected. Significant and somewhat difficult tasks of social role configuration, cognitive maturity, independence, peer relations, perspective taking, complicated emotional experiences, and identity formation are all on the table. To make it even more difficult, add to this the increasing responsibilities and expectations put on the adolescent by the family, school, and society at large. “You are not a kid anymore” is a loaded phrase they hear quite often and if the right level of support, understanding, care and guidance is not provided, the teenager might feel like an individual drawning in an ocean of uncertainty one minute and being thrown everywhere in a unrelenting storm the next.
