Resolving growing pains
It’s easy to forget that young people have a lot to deal with. Growing up brings with it different challenges at different times. Children experience all kinds of relationship and friendship changes including peer pressure and bullying.
Then there’s hormonal instabilities, pressure from the school environment and, at times, having to cope with parental conflict. These feelings of anxiety can reveal themselves in all kinds of habits and behaviours, many of which are unhelpful to the confidence needed to move from childhood to adulthood.
