Key characteristics of a teenage boy
A teenage boy is now in the period of adolescence which is the transition from their childhood to their adulthood. During this time there are many changes ranging from physical, social, intellectual, emotional and personality.
During adolescence a boy will go through changes such as puberty as they move into physical maturity. Their body will gradually change to become a young adult through the ages of 13 to 18 and they will grow taller and stronger during their growth spurt which usually starts around the age of 13.
Due to the physical changes happening so rapidly during adolescence, teenage boys can become self-conscious and sensitive about their body changes. They also begin to separate from their parents in order to make their own identity among their friends and peers and become more independent.
Cognitive development increases during adolescence allowing abstract thinking giving a teenage boy the ability to make decisions based on knowledge and understanding how this may affect consequences. They will also learn the necessary skills in order to gain independence such as understanding and analysing certain social situations in order to make friends.
Teenage boys will use their understanding past experiences to help them develop healthy, mutual long-lasting relationships. They will develop the ability to understand their feelings and analyze what causes them to feel a certain way. Towards the end of adolescence they will begin to place more value on personality as opposed to appearance.
