The family system transforms as a child enters adolescence and parents face many challenges because the family is impact by an adolescent transitioning in various ways (McGoldrick, Carter, & Garcia-Preto 2011).

Effects on the Parents
Mid-life crisis (McGoldrick, Carter, & Garcia-Preto, 2011)

When parents have children entering the adolescent stage they start realizing their own age and have a mid-life crisis. The parents try to stay youthful by buying sport cars, fast boats, or even doing adventures activities.
Change & Adjustment
Challenging shifts
Tension & Dilemmas among family members
The need to establish balance
(Martin & Fabes, 2009)
Adolescents are trying to figure out their identity and face physical and psychological changes (
The Development Of Children
, 2002).
Parents are no longer the primary source of emotional support (mid-life crisis) and they experience stress and anxiety as the adolescent becomes more independent (McGoldrick, Carter, & Garcia-Preto, 2011).
Families experience elevated tension in the home and family dynamics change as the adolescent becomes more independent.
Single-parent households are less hierarchical because siblings have more responsibility and authority (Garber, 2011). Single-parent households also experience more stress.
Effects on the Adolescent:
Body Changes (puberty)
Transitions (elementary to secondary school)
Psychological Shifts (sexually)
Behavior Changes
Self-Esteem Issues

The Development Of Children
, 2002). This is a time for growth and development for the adolescent. The drastic changes can put the adolescent in a vulnerable position & potentially early sexual encounters & self-esteem issues. Sometimes this will cause the adolescent to make irrational decisions due to the rapid growth.
"Between 15% and 30% of young people
drop out of school before completing high
school; adolescents have the highest arrest
rate of any age group; and increasing
numbers consume alcohol regularly" (
The Development Of Children
, 2002).
