The word adolescent comes from the Latin adolescere, meaning to “grow into maturity”. To many people it means the time when they become an adult. Everybody goes through adolescence, how they experience it is a different matter. The question that is being asked “is adolescence necessarily a time of storm and stress”. In this essay there are many different points of view.
Evaluate the milestones and important influences of adolescence. The beginning of adolescence is often marked by the onset of puberty. Puberty is “the period during which an individual becomes physiologically capable of reproduction.” (Danesi, 1994, pp5-6) Puberty is therefore, in most cases, a major milestone for adolescents as it is mainly the defining factor of how the adolescent period begins. Clarke (1968, p53) mentions in his book that there are rare exceptions to puberty and adolescence occurring simultaneously. Clarke writes of Greulich “citing the case of a precocious girl who attained puberty at the age of three years and eleven months: at one year of age, her breasts were quite large; at three years and seven months, she menstruated.” Gabriel (1971, p298) explains this phenomenon as precocious puberty: “In exceptional cases, the restraining substances cease to function, and the releasing mechanism becomes prematurely active.

In Uncommon Youth Ministry: Your Onramp to Launching an Extraordinary Youth Ministry, Jim Burns seeks to provide a resource for youth ministers who want their ministry to reach its maximum potential. Burns had originally written Youth Builder for this same purpose, but then updated it into Uncommon Youth Ministry to serve the newest generation of youth workers. Burns highlights how, recently, youth ministry is becoming more and more prominent in the lives of teenagers. Now, when kids go through crises, they consult their parents first, and then their youth workers, whereas previously youth workers would be far down the list. This is because of the development of youth ministries into real and relational programs rather than just a “glorified babysitter.” In defining the difference between past youth groups and current relational youth ministries, Burns illustrates how youth workers are finally meeting the relational needs that teens require than simply providing a program for them to attend.
After a few years of traveling as a maid to a singer she decided to go back to school though and finish, but she was 26 by now. So she came up with the idea to take ten years off of her life and becoming a teenager again. When she took those ten years off that put her back at sixteen again and she never gained the years she took back. Zora had to always present herself ten years younger so people would believe her and would not get caught.

Others are called mini theories; these on the other hand deals on a limited aspect of development for instance social and cognitive growth. A major theorist such Sigmund Freud outlined the various stages of development in children where growth transformations occur.

Freud’s stages included oral, anal, phallic, latency and genital stages. All the stages involve the fulfillment of libidinal desires that play significant roles in adulthood.
