Start > Resource centre > Articles > Growing pains Part 1

Adolescence is a difficult period for teenagers, as they have to cope with three different kinds of change. These changes are both physical and physiological. For example, a girl develops quite marked changes in her form and figure while boys have to start borrowing Dad's razor. He, too, becomes aware of other quite remarkable physical sex developments, besides growing a beard. Secondly, adolescents have to learn to fit in with the family on a rather new footing and the family has to do some fitting in, as well!

Teenagers develop independence and like to take decisions on their own. Thirdly, the adolescent nearly always has to make radical changes in his or her relationship with the world outside the front gate. These youngsters suffer from changes in schools and teachers and realise they have to face competition with their peers.
