Deep listening, mutual respect and clear communication go a long way in helping adolescents deal with teenage stress, says Jamuna Rangachari
A TEEN SPEAKSTeenagers face stress and it is usually about things that may not really bother adults. Other than our studies, we worry about how popular we are, issues with our parents and siblings, making sense of the world and career choices. New items keep entering the list.
In every area, what has helped me cope is realising nothing will be a problem for ever. If last year, I was considered the most popular girl, this year that may not be the case. As with friends, the same is the case with teachers.
As to what I want to do later, I do not know. But as I donít know yet, I try and perform well in all areas.
