Adolescents 

The teen years are a time of great change. Your adolescent’s body is changing as are his or her thoughts.

Teens often seek more independence and the parent or guardian may not know how much independence is safe. The information below is intended for both you and your teen. The most important thing you can do is be sure to talk often about what is going on in your teen’s life.
