Teenage years are exciting time when adolescents explore new opportunities such as becoming independent, developing new interests, making new friends, and creating new social connections. What makes this time so unique is the eagerness for “branching out”. They want to discover who they are and how they relate to the rest of the world.
As exciting as it is, teenage years have also proven to be difficult for adolescents and their families. Discovery of new identities and different societal/family expectations can create pressure. Life stressors mean a greater need for support and attentive care from loved ones. Disconnection is possible when miscommunication occurs as caregivers attempt to help, leaving the family feeling distraught.
Asking for professional help while your teens go through these life-cycle changes can be beneficial for their development and the unity of the family. An attentive counselor who is sensitive to the individual’s as well as the family’s needs can offer valuable insight that promotes the family's growth. Through the trusted counselor-client relationship, adolescents learn to strengthen their sense of self-worth and become well-prepared for future directions.
