Why your teenager may need counseling
Today, teenagers can benefit from therapy for a variety of reasons. Teenagers and young adults are under considerable pressure that may come from friends, school, family, or a traumatic experience. Stress can burden teenagers and adolescents and exacerbate other issues such as self-esteem and substance abuse.
Could teens today be more stressed than adults? An American Psychological Association’s survey reveals that Millennials, aged 18-33, were the country’s most-stressed generation.
A teen who is struggling may express him or herself by acting disrespectful, oppositional or aggressive. They can argue constantly with parents, or engage in self-destructive behaviors. As a parent, you may worry about how your child if he or she seems to cope with emotions by challenging or defying adults who want to help, both at home and at school.
