On their fourteen birthday a teenager begins to be self-possessed: happy and sure of itself, exuberant and energetic with a strong emotional fiber, always ready to satisfy the demands of the outside world. But they aren't quite their yet. This can be a special time for the parents and child alike, as they work together to form the bond that will last into adulthood.

It makes sense it would be to assume that these excellent and promising qualities have intensified and become more extensive in the course of the following year. But things do not happen in this way, because the development, as already stated, is due to a different logic.

In this age tend to set more specific behaviors of adolescence, where the young:

  • Fight with their sense of identity,
  • It feels strange or confused with itself or with your body,
  • It focuses on himself, alternating between high expectations and a poor concept,
  • Friends influence him in his mode of dress and interests,
  • Your mood is changing,
  • It improves your ability to the use of the language and its form of expression,
  • It has fewer demonstrations of affection towards parents; occasionally gets rude,
  • Is complaining of that those parents interfere with their independence, and
  • It has a tendency to return to child behavior, particularly when under stress.

Then Comes The Big Day

Often, the fifteen-year-old boy is 'indifferent' and speaks with a soft voice, rather than the lush thunderous in the previous year. Their powers of expansion are so lean that sometimes believe it is lazy or, at least, tired. It produces some impression of apathy. This impression, however, can be very well mistaken, because the apparent apathy is closely related to a restful and thoughtful concern for their intimate moods.

It grants an attention focused to these subtle states, which contrasts with the more vigorous emotions from a year earlier. Some of the most significant maturity traits relate to this age, to a marked refinement of mental patterns.

This growing appreciation of the nuances and subtle forms of feeling are manifest in a new sensibility and irritability, along with many resistances, dislikes and suspicions that populate his conduct.

The feelings, whether positive or negative, we are not fully formed from our origin. You are configuring gradually through growth and experience.
