Adolescents are hostile, anxious, immature, and emotionally variable.
Laws and restrictions
Adults infantilize
adolescents
Adolescence today is more difficult, complex, and treacherous than in previous generations.
Today's kids never know the innocence, exploration, and imagination.
They fail to learn to resolve conflict, think for themselves, or do real-life problem solving.
This is not only a problem for adolescents but also for eighteen through twenty-five year old young adults who also continue to remain in childhood.

Adolescents are rebellious, vulnerable, mischievous, and irresponsible.
Biological development appears to be universal.
However
the concepts, images, conditions, and even roles of adolescents are different from culture to culture.
Margaret Mead
186 pre-industrial societies, 60 percent of such societies do not have a word for adolescence
The modern concept of adolescence is not general or common, but an anomaly.

Biblical Concept
The concept of adolescence was originated from evolution.
Adolescence represents less-evolved human
Creation
Fall
Redemption
Genesis 1:26-27 God created man in His own image.
Image of God
Human beings have the great dignity of being creatures with a capacity for love, morality, rationality, artistic creation, and all the other uniquely human capabilities.
Less-evolved beings
Living creatures who bear the image of God
All human beings are born
with a sinful nature.
Young adults are prone to sin and in need of moral and intellectual direction.
God saved not only souls but also thoughts, emotions, will, and habits.
bring a redemptive force to reverse the evil and corruption.
They should
redeem the sinful world
This is the purpose of the Christian’s life.

Cultural renewal
Hebrew
Greek
These words are uses to designate age, or a grouping within society, but always in a neutral sense.
The status of young adults is not limited to the pre-twenty segment of society.

In Isaiah 40:30-31,
In Psalms 103:5,
In Proverbs 20:29, the author writes that The glory of
In Ecclesiastes 12:1,
young men is their strength.
the psalmist sings that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Isaiah praises that those who wait on God will renew their strength with the comment that Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted.
Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth.
young adults should keep their purity by guarding it according to the Word of God.
You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God.
The Bible also commands that young adults should respect and honor adults. (Leviticus 19:32; Exodus 20:12; Ephesians 6:2-3, and Proverbs 1:8)
In Leviticus 19:32,
In Psalms 119:9,
In Psalms 25:7 and Job 13:26, a typical expression appears: “the sins of my youth,” and it signifies that young adults can easily fall into temptation and regret it later.
They are linked with acts of shame (Isa 54:4), disgrace (Jer 31:13) and lewdness (Ezek 23:21) in the Bible.
In 2 Timothy 2:22, Paul encourages Timothy, his spiritual son, to flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace.
In Titus 2:6, Paul also admonishes Titus to help and instruct young adults in the church at Crete to be self-controlled.
