Teenage Problems

  Working with teenagers demands a degree of fluidity and flexibility very particular to teenagers. One of the things you need to do with adolescents is really enter into their world, because it is so profoundly different, both cognitively and emotionally, than the world of children or adults.

Overall 34% of teens are sexually active. This can be alarming and confusing for parents. Teens live in a world where sexting seems like a normal behavior and not just among their friends,
