Keep in mind that some of the behaviors we see in our kids are not indications of a problem. For example, adolescents are often moody and self-centered. They may start experimenting with clothing, sex, sexual orientation, and drugs. Usually, they withdraw from their parents, expressing less love and asking for less guidance. They may even criticize their parents openly. Some will become extremely shy, while others may act overconfident. Most of them are worrying about the future and wondering where they'll fit in.
If your child is just going through the ups and downs of adolescence, don't worry. But if you're not sure, this website might help answer your questions.
