exciting times in life. However it can also be one of the most challenging times as well. Teens are under tremendous pressure to fit in with their friends, make good grades, obey their parents and test their wings of independence.  The situation gets even more complicated with hormonal changes in their bodies and family issues like divorce. Parents often feel more stressed out than the teens because they are left trying to navigate the teens emotional roller coaster of emotions.
