True Self Counseling, LLC, LCSW, CACYFSW, CCTP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Albuquerque
Teens are faced with the challenge of coming to an identity that will reflect more of themselves and less of their parents. The adolescent brain, is still developing and won't reach full maturity until the early twenties. The body is rapidly changing and emotions can feel larger than life. Your teen daughter or son may be taking many more cues from peers to gain a sense of her/his individual identity and place in the world. Life can be marked by unnecessary risk-taking, shrinking into the background, or with structure and encouragement, authentic building of character and self-esteem.
