Adolescent Crisis: What does it mean?

Researches have shown that apart from personal and individual differences of teenagers and their parents are their relationships mostly harmonious. If a conflict arises, the underlying reason could lie in one of the five areas of life:

  • Social life and habits
  • Responsibility
  • School
  • Relationships in a family
  • Moral values 

Factors that affect a conflict

The essence of a conflict in a family depends on many facts.


Fact 1 is an age of a teen. For example, girls start to quarell with their parents since the age of 12 years old. The peak of the conflict falls at the age of 14-15 years old. The similar situation is noticed by boys aged 16 years old.

Fact 2 is a gender of a teenager because girls complain more about family problems than boys. Essential is a gender of parents who a teen lives with. As a rule, teenagers complain more about difficulties in communication with a father than with a mother.


Fact 3 is a whole atmosphere in a family. Conflicts break out more often in a family of an authoritarian type rather than in a democratic family. The causes of conflicts in authoritarian families lie in questions like a spending money and also a free time organization outside a home, public life and doing houshold work.

Conflicts arise more often in families with a low socioeconomic status related to requirements of obedience, courtesy, respect, whereas families with

middle-income parents are more concerned about the development of children's autonomy and initiative.

In families with low incomes, parents are more worried about keeping children out of trouble at school, although parents in families with a middle level of material wealth are concerned more about success and achievements of their children.

Fact 4 means surroundings in which a child is brought up. The surroundings determine fears which the parents have.


Fact 5 is a parents' reaction to teenage behaviour. There are also parents who demonstrate indifference towards children or parents who are always unsatisfied with their kids. Are you parents who supporting your child always in bad and good times?

Factor 6 means a family size at least in families of a middle class. The larger are families of a middle class, the huger are conflicts between parents and children because parents apply more often violence in order to keep a child in obedience.


There are three variants of the Adolescent Crisis Development:

  • The Adolescent Crisis can go past your child.
  • It can affect your child partially.
  • It can involve your child completely.

The positive point is that even teens in troubled relationships with parents consider this

parent-child-communication as warm, close, flexible and positive.


  • Speak to your teenage child more.
  • Do not be an authoritarian parent.
  • Do not demand obedience of your teenage child in a violent way.
  • Promote the development of children's autonomy and initiative.
  • Do not keep your children off trouble at school.
  • Support more success and achievements of your teenage child in all sphereas of life.
  • Do not be a troubled parent.
  • Do not cause fears in your teenage child.
  • Love your child in an unconditional way and undepending from his/her achievements and behaviour.
  • Excuse your child.
  • Accept and love your teenage child with all his/her deficiencies.
  • Note also that there are three generation: up to 20 years old, between 21 and 50 years old and from 51 years old onwards. Each of this generation has different values. Try to understand the values of your child, recognise them and accept the fact that each generation differs from the next one.


Do you experience some problems with your teenage child?

    When I was growing up I had a great relationship with my Mom and Dad but when I turned 13 my Mother pulled away and starting blowing everything out of proportion, calling me a wild teen which really hurt my feelings. One night I heard my Father telling my Mom she was creating drama because statistic said teenagers would rebel at a certain age, that doesn’t always happen and she was ruining our relationship. Sadly she didn’t stop and it took awhile to repair the damage. My Father and I stayed close all throughout high school, college, and even today. This is a great post with some wonderful information.

    Great advice! I agree on talking, being friends with your mum or dad is much easier.

    Very interesting post!
    At my home we always been a very close and open to talk family so, despite the many conflicts when me and my brother were teen, we've overcame them pretty well and they didn't affect the general harmony!

    You are right and have come up with some real solutions.
    When I was growing up I had my family to support me but then the differences were there too. We grew in absolute different decades and frankness among us was a little rare, but thankfully for my brother I have tried changing things and can only hope that he has even better chances.
