What Is An Adolescent?
An adolescent is a young person in the stage of development between child and adult. This stage seems to be starting earlier with each generation and at present starts around age 11 or 12. The World Health Organisation defines an adolescent as any person between the ages of 10 and 19 and this stage of life can be linked to the physical, emotional and social changes associated with puberty and maturation.
