their new skills at home, they will hopefully be able to recapture and
continue to enjoy this significant role which every parent truly values.

changed.What makes your teen different?What makes him behave the way he
does?What are his present concerns?Part I of this module presents an
overview of adolescent development.Knowing this will enable parents to
understand their teen better and be more sensitive to his basic needs at
this stage in his life.
