I am a mother of three. 2 of my kids are teenagers. From what I've learned and experienced, it seems that teenage years are very difficult and overwhelming. A person is transitioning from childhood to adolescence, finding out who they are, growing mentally, physically, and emotionally, trying new things, entering high school, dating, puberty and etc. It's an uncertain time in a person's life. Your life is changing in so many ways. A lot of adults feel that teenagers are bitchy and don't understand the pressure that some of them have from their peers.
Depression is very high in teens, and they sometimes feel as though adults don't understand them. Teenage years are very distressing. Adults don't have as much pressure on them to be a certain way or act a certain way as teens do. Going through puberty and becoming your own person can be challenging. Technically, teenagers are not children in a sense. But they are still treated as if they are, which can be humiliating. I want to know how other moms feel about this?
