Teenage years can be some of the hardest years of a one's life. Teenagers are growing in so many different ways during this developmental stage. They are learning about who they are, what they like, and who they want to be. They are starting to develop stronger opinions and see life for what it is through their own eyes instead of their parents. They have more responsibilities and face pressure about making choices about their careers and college. They are in an in-between stage of childhood and adulthood, which can be very confusing and awkward at times.
Many teenagers have symptoms of anxiety and depression and are not exactly sure how to handle those feelings. Sometimes they are not equip with strong self-insight to know what is really going on or coping skills to handle what is going on. At times, this is was can cause a downward spiral in their lives. As a parent, you may notice your teenager "not acting like themselves" anymore. They may be withdrawing from some of their activities, seem to be more irritable, and sometimes appear to be completely overwhelmed.
