Adolescence is the stage of life that bridges the gap between childhood and adulthood. There are three main phases: early adolescence from age 10 to 13, middle adolescence from 14 to 17 and late adolescence from 18 to 21. In each of these phases, the brain and body undergo many changes which impact the way teens and young adults relate to the world.

Parenting a child while they go through this stage of life can be challenging. Understanding what they’re going through can help you to be the parental figure they need as they prepare for adulthood.
