Teen anxiety is often an indication that puberty has started in the boy or girl. The teen kids become stubborn, they stop listening, and they start answering back and show sudden outbursts of anger.The children are not to be blamed at this time as this a normal change during puberty. The kids are unable to face the physical and emotional changes in their body and are full of questions arising in their mind. Children do not understand this transition but adults must understand the situation and spend more time with them instead of posing greater demand from them to make them rebellious. Children do not consciously understand what is happening to them as they make the transition into their teen years, so it doesn’t help to blame them or impose tighter demands on them in an attempt to curb their rebelliousness.
