Teen years can be difficult, and it's no a secret. Every generation of teens has its problems, often influenced by cultural and social influences. However, teens today may have concerns that are quite different from those of their grandparents and parents.

Teen years can bring about a lot of emotional, physical, and mental turmoil. Stress and pressures can be exacerbated by fluctuating hormones. This can lead to a stressed teenager who is unable to cope with life healthily. Thus, you have the recipe to troubled teens.

6 social issues that teens face today

Recognizing what issues might be affecting your teen is a good way to get them the help they need.

1. Peer pressure

While peer pressure is not a new social problem for teens today, it can be quite different. Peer pressure can come from their friends and other teens in their peer group. It could include skipping school, engaging in risky or undesirable behaviours, and even moving into drug and alcohol abuse.

Teens today face an additional concern: they may be subject to more pressure and abuse from peers. Teens don't want to be ridiculed or abused by their peers, especially on social media. This can lead to a greater need for approval from their peers.

2. Stop Bullying

Bullies have not stopped bullying others in person, but there has been an increase in online bullying cases in recent years. The number of cases has increased almost exponentially, with more teenagers spending their time at home than in school.

Bullying online doesn't pose the same danger of injury as bullying at school. Still, it can lead to an increased risk of depression and other mental health concerns.

3.Anxiety and depression

Teenagers are at a higher risk for depression, anxiety, and a host of other mental health concerns. This is especially true if there are any family histories of depression, trauma or abuse. Add to those hormonal fluctuations and how teens see the world, and you have the basis for serious mental illness.

Depression is fairly common amongst teenagers. If your teenager is experiencing depression, it shouldn't be ignored. Suicidal thoughts are the most common cause in teens. Teens must be treated for their mental health issues.

It is not an issue that only teens face today. Generations upon generations of teenagers have had to deal with alcohol, drug, and smoking addictions. However, teens today might have greater access to illicit substances, especially if they are available in their homes. Studies have shown that more than half of teens have tried alcohol and some illicit substance.

Teenagers will experiment because of boredom, curiosity, or peer pressure. However, there is reason to be concerned if experimentation becomes a regular practice and abuse.

4.Problems with self-esteem and body image

Teenagers are bombarded with messages and images that directly address their body image. Eating disorders can result from a belief that their appearance determines their worth. A person may feel that they are not up to society's standards of beauty and self-esteem.

Eating disorders can take on many forms and can be potentially life-threatening if not addressed swiftly. In addition, many teens with eating disorders have problems with their mental health.

5.Social media overuse

Social media has become an integral part of our daily lives. It can be more than just a place for teens to post photos of their food and keep track of their daily activities. It can be a source of stress as well as unrealistic comparisons. We don't share our problems on social media. We share the good things we see, do and experience. Teens struggling with their lives may feel that they don't have a lot to offer and feel less valuable or interesting. It is also possible for them to feel excluded if they see their friends having fun.

Teens and adults are both at risk of spending too many hours on social media. They may also be tempted to check out what other people are doing. To improve your teen's mental well-being, it can be beneficial to suggest setting limits on social networking.

6. Stress can come from many angles.

It may seem that everyone is stressed. So what should your teen be worried and stressed about?

Remember that adults have developed strategies for dealing with stress, regardless of whether they are healthy. Teenagers might not have the coping skills to get through difficult times. You can also add in anxiety, depression, hormonal fluctuations, peer pressure, and pressures from school.

Teens could be experiencing unmanageable stress levels that cause them to resort to unhealthy coping strategies.

What can you do for your troubled teenager?

Early identification can make all the difference. You can help your troubled teenager to find a better way to address his concerns by being aware of the signs and taking proactive steps to address them.

Individual signs can differ and could include:

  • Changes in sleeping patterns, such as more sleep than usual or developing insomnia.
  • Changes in eating habits, including overeating and restricting behaviour disguised as diets.
  • People lose interest in the activities they used to love or become obsessed with new and unusual interests.
  • Dropping grades or other concerns at school, such as disciplinary actions for bad behaviour or skipping school.
  • Isolating yourself from friends and family. Refraining from social activities or spending time with friends.

Your family will be back on track to stability and normality if you get your troubled teenager help most beneficially. For every member of your family, therapy is the first step. There are many benefits to individual and family therapy.
