Life as a Young Teenager

Young Teenager Pics

Tweens go through many changes during pre-adolescence and young teenager pics show you these experiences. These images help you if you're wondering whether other young teens go through what you do or if you're a parent looking for insight on your pre-teen.

Fun with Friends

Tweens love their friends. They enjoy spending as much time with them as possible. These friends support each other during difficult times and cheer them on during celebration.

Improving Self-Esteem with Sport

During this age, many young teenagers are just getting into sports. Playing sports has many benefits, including fostering teamwork and improving self-esteem and energy, which makes you feel great!

Things Become Complicated

Depending on what's going on in a young teenager's life, he or she may start feeling sad, overwhelmed and discouraged about things. This could be the result of various stressful events, such as home life issues, problems with close friends or peer pressure. It's important not to ignore your son or daughter or friend if you sense something is wrong. You can help by letting him or her know that you are available and ready to listen whenever he or she is ready to talk.

Spending Time with Parents

Young teenagers appreciate time spent with parents. This could just be working next to each other or going out shopping together. This is the time to connect with your pre-teen, because adolescence can be a bit more challenging.

Getting Ready for High School

One of the biggest things on a tween's mind is transitioning to high school. Changing schools, meeting new teachers and friends can be very intimidating. Don't think you are the only one who feels afraid about it-even if others don't show it.

A First Crush

You may find someone interesting and you enjoy spending time with him or her. All of a sudden, you can't talk right in front of the person and you're smiling whenever you think, speak or see him or her. If this sounds like you, you may have your first crush! What do you do now? Find out how that person feels about you by asking or having a friend do it.

Striving for Individuality

You're starting to see yourself in a new way. You want to be your own person. This strive for individuality may reflect itself in your clothes or who you choose to be friends with.

Questions About Life

During this time, you may have a lot of deep questions about what is going on in current events and what the future holds. Don't keep those questions bottled up inside you, as doing so can lead to increased anxiety. Let them out and find the answers.

Support at Your Fingertips

With technology, you can learn just about anything you want to about how you are feeling and what you are going through during this time in your life. Searching online to find out if other tweens are thinking the same thing you are can help make you feel a lot better about yourself and your situation.
