EMOTIONS

Your life is changing, just like your body. You might be feeling a lot more pressure these days, and you are still developing the skills you need to deal with that pressure. You may be having responsibilities at home, or not getting the best grades at school. You even might be dealing with friendship problems or bullying.

WHAT TO DO?

As you grow up, you will eventually develop the skills you need to handle your emotions, but for now, you can't do it alone, talk to your parents and teacher, they will help. They probably went through what you are going through.

You may feel anxious about your body changes, friendships, grades, tests, family issues, homework, work, lack of sleep, health, extra-curricular activities or your future.
