Adolescence comes from the latin word “adolescere” meaning to grow up”. It started from 12 to 18 years old. During this stage, you develop the ability to understand abstract ideas, such as higher math concepts and develop moral philosophies including rights and privileges, establish and maintain satisfying relationships by learning to share intimacy without feeling worried or inhibited, question old values without losing your identity. You may go through many changes as you move from childhood into physical maturity. The sudden and rapid physical changes that you go through make you very self- conscious, sensitive and worried about your own body changes. You may make painful comparisons

Adolescence (from Latin: adolescere meaning "to grow up")is a transitional stage of physical and psychological human development generally occurring between puberty and legal adulthood (age of majority). The period of adolescence is most closely associated with the teenage years, although its physical, psychological and cultural expressions can begin earlier and end later. For example, although puberty has been historically associated with the onset of adolescent development, it now typically begins prior to the teenage years and there has been a normative shift of it occurring in preadolescence,(generally ends with the beginning of puberty, but may also be defined as ending with the start

Middle Childhood and Adolescence
Teenage years are times for developing maturity. At this stage, teens are usually excited because they are exploring several features in the environment. The youth struggle to identify themselves from other children as adulthood is the next big thing to them. Peer pressure in most cases supports individual development among adolescents. However, influence of significant others may not allow individual peer pressure to take effect in a teen’s life. Adolescence stage is characterized by immense influence of age-mates. It involves high levels of self-consciousness and self-centeredness. These two groups can be disturbed greatly by social pressures like drug

Music, Adolescence and Emotions
Most of people listen to music and it has been played such an important role in one’s emotional period and during the adolescent phase. Music and songs contain emotions and share familiar features with one’s feeling and emotion. It would help individual in terms of socializing, communicating and sharing values with others especially adolescents. It is possible that music also help with learning in school and focusing into studies. Adolescents in general will go through more dramatic emotional phase compared to other phase (Miranda & Claes, 2009). Emotion regulation is one of the uses of music that contains positive moods.

The adolescence that we see today in the United States of America’s more urban areas seem to have a different perspectives on the ideas of the importance of school, career endeavors, and their futures overall when compared to those generations that have come before them. We are unsure of the exact reasons that this first began happening, but there are many ideas as to what could bring this about. These items include attitudes toward academics, peer and environmental pressures that surround them, and how they truly see their lives going in the future. Jay McLeod does a great job taking a closer look at all of these things in his book entitled, “Ain’t No Makin’ It” and in this paper we will

Addiction in Adolescence
It is a curious thing that people continue to pursue habits that cause them certain or a definite harm, this harm maybe caused to their individual self or those around them, and yet they continue to pursue it. The answer to why may not be given clearly even by these people themselves. Most of the smokers, substance abusers and alcoholics, as well as drug addicts are well aware of the negative effects that they may be dragging themselves towards but are not able to change their habits, for their addiction is too great and their self-control too

Adolescence is just one big walking pimple.
The process of rapid physical changes in adolescence is called puberty. It starts gradually, from around eleven years for girls and thirteen for boys. The age at which puberty starts has been dropping in most countries, probably due to better nutrition. So, your children may hit puberty earlier than you did. The hormone changes responsible actually begin some years earlier and may produce periods of moodiness and restlessness. Girls start these changes before boys and will, for the first three or four years, appear to be maturing much faster. After this, boys catch up. These changes include:

Tobacco Cessation Effectiveness in Youth and Adolescence
Despite the development of smoking cessation medications and aids, tobacco use remains a major societal problem in America today. The systemic effects of the nicotine contained in tobacco and absorbed by the body leave a devastating footprint on smokers and non-smokers alike. The financial strain on the healthcare system is self-evident. The research gathered has proven to be inadequate because the sample sizes are small, and the researchers did not properly record statistics to prove effectiveness of the cessation programs.

These medications were given four times the rate of other children. Concerns have been on the rise for children that are given “psychotropic medications”. Primarily the concern is high for those children in foster care, and who receive Medicaid, because they are in a system that has lost structure of the importance of the health and welfare of children and adolescence. Also because foster children are more likely to have more emotional and social issues, and need treatment to include psychiatric medication. Psychotropic medications are

Identity Crisis in Adolescence as Portrayed by Erik Ericson in Relation to Stories of "The Catcher in the Rye" and "Ragged Dick"
Erikson defines identity crisis as â€œa time of intensive analysis and exploration of different ways of looking at oneselfâ€ (Erikson, 20-27). He studied cultural life among various indigenous tribes such as the Yurok of Northern California and the Sioux of South Dakota from which he developed the theories of identity development and identity crisis.
Erikson did describe identity as a sense and an observable quality of personal image and continuity which is usually combined with some belief in the image and commencement of shared world perspective (Erikson, 17

The young boys wanting and trying to grow up quickly is shown in the tree house; they have decided upon a secret knock to gain entry to the tree house, as if they are part of a very important secret gang.

Finding one’s self is a personal journey that everyone must go through in life. Every person starts the journey, but not everyone finishes it. A person can spend an entire lifetime trying to define who he or she is as an individual and as a member of a social group. Identities can constantly change over time, but the stage of adolescence is when a person is most aware and self-conscious about his or her identity (Butler 1). The principles that most fluidly mold adolescence identities are social media, gender roles, and religion.
The stage of adolescence is usually when one begins to think deeply about how identity will affect his or her life (Butler 1). Pre-teens and teenagers feel

In the study of child development, adolescence refers to the second decade of the life span, roughly from ages 10 to 20. The word adolescence is Latin in origin, derived from the verb adolescere, which means "to grow into adulthood." In all societies, adolescence is a time of growing up, of moving from the immaturity of childhood into the maturity of adulthood.
There is no single event or boundary line that denotes the end of childhood or the beginning of adolescence. Rather, experts think of the passage from childhood into and through adolescence as composed of a set of transitions that unfold gradually and that

Summary and Review
As childhood comes to and end and adolescence emerges, young teenagers become more interested in friends and activities away from the family. Many theories suggest that during adolescence there is a higher want for independence and individualization. This leads to a decrease in closeness and an increase in conflict. In result, the adolescents' power in the relationship grows while the parent's power is decreased. For example, if a teen and a parent conflict differences, the parent will withdrawal from the argument. This brings equilibrium in power.
Many studies on parent-adolescent relationships are based on cross-sectional data, which means participants of

Adolescence is a risky business. Despite outstanding physical health, the risk of injury or death during
adolescence is 2–3 times that of childhood. The primary cause of this increase in morbidity and mortality
is heightened risky behavior including drinking, driving, drug-taking, smoking, and unprotected sex.

general regulation of behavior (Luria A. 1973). Brain research illustrates that prefrontal development is not complete until near the age of 25. Development starts with an increased neural overgrowth in pre pubescence. During adolescence the brain begins to “prune” the neural growth by building and reinforcing neural pathways that are used most often and de-activating those that are not. MRI studies of the brain show that developmental processes tend to occur in the brain in a back to front pattern, explaining why the prefrontal cortex develops last. MRI research has also revealed that during adolescence the bundle of nerve fibers connecting the right and left hemispheres of the brain are also

From the day of birth a child is given a label or sex-typed (Block, 19883: Etaugh, 1983). He or she is treated according to that label.

Sex differentiation continues with girls developing faster than boys (Berk, 2010).

Sexual behavior can start as soon as the child is born. In some cases when you notice that your child smiles and giggles when you are changing their diapers, well it is because you are stimulating the babies and it is a degree of masturbation for them. Also in this stage (0-2 years old) curiosity is common and you will notice the child touching their private areas.

Adolescent Abuse and Addiction
Psalms 121:1-2 tells us to look for help in the Lord, not in the flesh. Unfortunately an astounding number of adolescents have not quite grasped this concept. The reasons for this are many. The relationship between abuse and addiction in adolescence is like a tangled web of physical, emotional and spiritual issues. A developing adolescent brain is affected by abuse and addiction as well. Spiritual practice can decrease the likelihood of drug and alcohol problems during the teen years. While abuse and addiction can lead to many problems in adolescence, a strong spiritual foundation can remedy this unhealthy pattern.

Self-esteem plays a central role in mental health, yet not enough is known about how youth evaluate themselves as they move across adolescence. While adolescent girls traditionally exhibit lower self-esteem than their male counterparts, research shows that messages adolescent boys receive from the media can damage their feelings of self-worth and negatively affect their behavior. The media portrays young men in an unrealistic manner, thereby causing unrealistic expectations of physical prowess, appearance, intellect and attractiveness to the opposite sex. When these idealistic expectations are not met, many

Because of that, teenagers join a group of friends, in some cases; “friends”, and to keep their status in the group, they might do things to be respected and accepted in the group. These things can be negative and positive. The negative influence could be if a group of friends start to smoke. Let’s pretend there are five boys in this group, four of them start to smoke

Jeffrey Arnett, author of Emerging Adulthood: The Winding Road from the Late Teens through the Twenties has written that “emerging adulthood is neither adolescence nor young adulthood, but is distinct from them both.” Emerging adulthood is a time of transition, a developmental bridge between adolescence and adulthood. This period of development is a period of change and exploration. The goal of emerging adulthood is to emerge from the chrysalis of adolescence and transform into an adult. There are beneficial results as well as negative impacts of this developmental stage.
A beneficial result of emerging adulthood is the gained understanding of how to manage one’s emotions. This can be
