Adolescence is a period of Storm & Stress, involving inevitable turmoil that takes place during the transition from childhood to adulthood. Teenagers are confronted with a variety of issues ranging from dealing with changes to their physical appearance to being accepted in friendship groups. This is then reflected in how they behave in public, how well they perform in school and other areas of their life, and how they deal with family expectations. Self-confidence is the belief that you’ll be successful in a particular situation or at a specific task. Your child’s self-confidence is related to their self-esteem, which is feeling good about yourself and feeling that you’re a worthwhile person. Self-confidence can vary throughout life, particularly during major life changes such as adolescence. Self-confidence helps teenagers make safe, informed decisions. Confident teenagers can avoid people and situations that aren’t necessarily right for them, and find those that are appropriate.
