Problems of Children & Teens

     In a perfect world, children and teens would grow up to be happy, healthy, functioning adults. However, there are hundreds of influences that they will encounter throughout their early lives that will have an impact on their development - both in negative and positive ways. The following is a brief list of some of the more common problems children and teens may face. For a more in-depth list please visit the American Academy Child and Adolescent Psychology website at http://www.aacap.org/about.

Teens specifically:
     There are various issues and disorders that adolescents may face in the turbulent times of their teen years. An adolescent feels all kinds of pressures - from parents, school and peers. They are in a transitional period where they are moving from childhood to adulthood. As well, the influence of peer pressure and the introduction of such pressures from drugs, alcohol and the opposite sex take their toll on any teen. A list of the most common problems follows.
