Well this is new…

Adolescence is an exciting time for anyone. The transition from being a dependent child to a semi-independent young adult is one of the most influential periods in human development. The changes that occur are both biological/physical and psychological/behavioral. It is the period when you first start examining your relationships with those closest to you, and when you first experiment with your body, alcohol, and drugs.

As exciting as this phase is, the sweeping changes can make or break a child’s future. The teenage brain isn’t fully developed and many don’t have sense of strict sense of discipline. Left unsupervised, the experimenting done during this period can have long lasting impacts… like this UK teen who at just age 15 has a Viagra addiction.
