Being a teenager is often a difficult time for some children as they are trying to figure the world out. Being a teenager today is pretty stressful compared to the days when I was growing up. Back then you often dealt with face to face problems, school pressure, possibly conflicts with your parents, and we didn’t have the technological advances that many teenagers have today. They are not only faced with some of the same problems that we had growing up but they have other problems that we didn’t have such as cyberbullying, sexting, drug use, prescription drug abuse, over the counter drug abuse, and so many other things that might cause a teenager to turn to other things in search of fitting in.
