The challenge is

there at every age.

So is the reward.

On the edge of independence, the adolescent rapidly hones a clear sense of identity. Unique opinions form—they should be respected, yet it is vital to teach the child to respect others, in return. Giving them affection is important, as they now have a deeper capacity for caring and forming more intimate relationships. They also have more concern for the future—this will be their last chance to prepare for the responsibility it will demand of them.
