Transitioning from the teen years into adulthood can be very exciting, yet scary; and it always includes “growing pains”. Teens who tire of adult advice listen to peers and messages from icons of popular culture. Some teens submit blindly to authority; some respect it; others rebel. Ideally teens will be receptive to wisdom but not controlled by commands; able to discern positive from negative peer pressure and media messages; and capable of monitoring and motivating themselves.

Security blankets, stages, delayed gratification, to crawl or walk, whine or affirm, are pondered.
