I'm a teenager

All children grow up, and once a cute baby disappears, giving way to a prickly and impulsive teenager. This fact usually shocks parents, but much more - the most yesterday's child, and when the adolescent crisis sets in, he needs support more than ever.

Experiencing the difficulties of physical maturity, it is important to believe that this happens to everyone, and everyone once was “covered” by a pubertal crisis of adolescence. At 9–15 years old, all hormones are naughty about everyone, which is why teenagers get attracted to the opposite sex, change their mood and appearance. Such changes often cause conflicts in the family and generally affect all aspects of life. But there is no cure for this "disease", it just needs to be experienced, like the temperature of the flu.

The manifestations and symptoms of the adolescent crisis are of the same type. Almost all teenagers around do not know how to communicate, how to relate to their appearance and how to manage emotions. These internal conflicts give rise to anger, depression, and experiments with style, but all this is normal. The main thing - do not panic, do not close in yourself and maintain good relations with relatives.

Adolescence is a period of crisis, when it is bad for everyone who lives next to the reflective teenager. However, he feels worse than others, because he is at the mercy of hormones, the surge of them simply “blows the roof off”. The teenage audience accounts for the largest number of suicides, HIV infections and the first experiences of alcohol use. And this is a rebellion, an unconscious attempt to say “I control life!”, “I make decisions!” or even worse - “pay attention to me ...”. Unfortunately, parents do not read between the lines, because the best way to communicate your desires is to have an open conversation.

The ongoing changes are scary, but do not keep the feelings in you - it is better to talk to your parents. The cause of the adolescence's crisis often lies not in puberty as such, but in the absence of contact with the family. But parents experienced the same thing, and their advice can be useful. You should not look for answers to your questions in the Internet or company of peers - only parents or other adults who can be trusted will give reliable information.

In general, all adolescents are concerned about the same problems. One of the most acute - self-doubt, based on changes in appearance. Here, nature has not invented anything new over the centuries - the physiology of all is the same, and the processes taking place are natural. To become more confident, you should start with a thorough hygiene. Daily shower, use of deodorant, regular change of clothes will give a feeling of comfort and eliminate unpleasant odors.

Therefore, it is important to plan walks, lessons, hobbies so that you go to bed on time - and let the whole world wait! Also at this age, it is time to pay attention to nutrition - fast food, chewing gum and buns, of course, are tasty, but affect the figure, so now you should understand the principles of a healthy diet.
