Physical & Mental Development Peer Pressure The term “peer pressure" refers to the influence that peers can have on each other. Although peer pressure does not necessarily have to be negative, the term "pressure" implies that the process influences people to do things that may be resistant to, or might not otherwise choose to do. Moral Reasoning Moral reasoning is the process of determining right or wrong in a given situation. Identity Vs. Role Confusion Identity versus confusion is the fifth stage of Erik Erikson's theory of psychosocial development. This stage occurs during adolescence between the ages of approximately 1-2-18. Teen need to develop a sense of self and personal identity. Risk Taking Risk-taking refers to the tendency to engage in behaviors that have the potential to be harmful or dangerous, yet at the same time provide the opportunity for some kind of outcome that can be perceived as positive. Physical and Sexual Devolopement Nature seems to have a warped sense of humor when it comes to puberty, the physical process of attaining sexual maturation and reproductive capacity that begins during the early adolescent years. How to Deal With Adolescence Adolescence can be a time when girls are catty, backstabbing, intimidating and downright bitchy. While it's important for girls to be able to get along in high school, it's also crucial that they learn the problem-solving skills that can help them with confrontations later in life.
