The transition to adolescence involves significant changes for young people as well as their parents and carers. New parenting demands require parents and carers to adapt their parenting. Many parents and carers are able to do this well, but for some the young person’s striving for autonomy can be seen as disobedience or rejection.

- adolescent behaviours
- family relationships
- worries related to parenting
