Start > Resource centre > Articles > Growing pains Part 2

These three varieties of change can lead to quite a lot of anxiety and worry. Medical advice is often asked for conditions which do not seem psychological, but merely physical. Parents have to realise their child is growing up and needs new freedoms, so long as they are not too 'permissive'. The physical symptoms that may begin include headaches, dyspepsia, irritability, and insomnia. Parents can help by providing a stable home and taking an interest in the youngster's hobbies or sports.

Sport is a wonderful way of working off a growing sense of power and muscular ability. But while parents should do all they can to encourage teenagers to take part in sports, it is worse for them to push their son or daughter into activities they obviously hate. They should also avoid expressing disappointment if their young hopeful doesn't win a swimming or athletic prize.

As for "keeping up with the young Joneses", I believe it is much better to let a youngster follow the fashion trends. It is far more useful for a parent to intervene if there is a chance a teen could be affected psychologically by their physical appearance, for example, seeking treatment if their son or daughter develops severe acne or dealing with weight issues.
