21st Century Adolescent Medicine for the Minds and Bodies of Teens and Tweens
As your child gets older, are you noticing that they are becoming more emotionally unpredictable? That they care more about their peers’ opinions than yours? That almost everything you do (or wear, or say) is “cringe”? Congratulations! You have a teenager!
The adolescent ride is a wild one. Kids grow and change fast, and all of that rapid change can manifest not only physically but emotionally and psychologically. For parents, it can be challenging to know whether their teen’s behavior is a normal response to the roller coaster of adolescence or if it’s time to get some professional help. If you’ve been asking yourself whether your teen is struggling with anxiety or depression, as opposed to typical teenage behavior, you’re not alone.
