What are the concerns of teenage boys and girls?

During adolescence, changes occurred. These changes occur during puberty. All these rapid changes bring excitement, and one of them was a new experience that sometimes makes people anxious. Therefore, some consider adolescence can be the most shameful moment in life. At that time, young people thought and felt that people were watching their behavior and lifestyle, and because of that they easily become confused. The anxieties were based only on assumptions, but the experiences cause growth and mostly cause physical change especially during puberty.

What are the concerns of teenage boys and girls?

1) Feeling tired and lazy

Sometimes, adolescents do not understand why they find it easy to be tired for no reason. Parents, family members and the teens themselves should understand that this feeling of fatigue is caused by physical changes that occur in the adolescent. Feelings of tiredness and laziness become more apparent when a teenager is given a heavier task at home or at school.

They sometimes dislike doing work and do little work either at home or at school. Although parents and teachers sometimes accuse them of being lazy, their laziness is based on biology. The physical growth is absorbing all of their energy, that is why they are tired and not interested in doing work which is more than what they need to. When they getting blamed or punished for not doing their job, they will rebel and further underminer their interests.

2) Getting fat

Nowadays, it is believed that more people were overweight. Obesity has become a serious problem not only because of its association with heart disease or diabetes but also for adolescents themselves because it affects their self-esteem and mutual friend among them. 

Whatever the cause of obesity, teenagers can feel anxious. Many of them try to satisfy their appetite but at the same time fear to be fat. They will eat too much, then remove the food consumed by forcing themselves to vomit or using laxatives to make their stomach empty. This practice is called bulimia and people who practice it often feel depressed and often experience side effects such as hair loss, tooth decay and irritation of gastric.

3) Like to be alone

During puberty, teens tend to isolate themselves because they were ashamed of their physical changes. They not only isolated from their friends but also from family and other activities, some even lock themselves to avoid being interrupted.

After puberty, most teens adapt to these physical changes, and as a result, they would rather hang out with others. Once the physical transformation of the adolescent is reversed, the adolescent returns to their pattern of childhood behavior. They tend to get along with their same-age friends. As a result, the changes in early adolescents only to left temporary influence on its behavior.
