Adolescence is referred to the 10 to 19-year age range. During their growth teenagers suffer from psycho-social disorders at one time or another. Majority of young couples are working because of industrialization and urbanization and therefore less opportunity to provide for their offspring. This age demographic has been a history of psycho-social issues and substance addiction. Most common disorders include disorders that internalize depression and anxiety, and disorders that outsource delinquency, aggression, educational difficulties, and truancy. Adolescence is mainly affected by the environments in the home and school. Support and counselling, involvement in artistic events, healthy sexual conduct, social knowledge, abstinence, usage of safeguards including contraceptives and getting married at a reasonable age are ideally the measures needed to handle teenage issues. During adolescence a gulf can emerge between the parents and their children. The explanation why all of us find it so daunting is that it's a time of accelerated physical transformation and significant emotional transition. They are thrilling but can be overwhelming and awkward for both parents and children alike. Adolescents in India face a wide variety of problems and challenges including dietary disorders, reproductive health problems, sexually transmitted infections or diseases (STD’s) and emotional and physical stress related issues. Stress also results in the abuse of tobacco and other drugs which shape habits.
