Teen Behavior, Explained

When kids are little, there's no shortage of advice around parenting challenges. But as they become teenagers, people tend to be less open about their struggles. 

Maybe it’s because they don’t want to complain. Or because their kids started to have opinions on what was shared about them and how. Or maybe it’s because our children are a reflection of us, and we don’t want to open ourselves up to judgement and shame.

The result is that we have a lot of questions about what goes on during this short but incredibly formative span of their lives. 

Below is a series of stories about teens with advice from experts across the university. What questions do you have about teens that Tufts experts may be able to answer? Send us an email to now@tufts.edu and we’ll work on it.
