For many teens ending a four-year high school career and entering college is an exciting time. They tend to view this as an ending of their youth and the beginning of their adult lives. It is a long awaited freedom from the rules and restrictions set by parents and teachers. Many young adults welcome and thrive with this new sense of control over their own lives. However, it is worthwhile for both the parent and the student to keep in mind that this autonomy brings responsibility, and responsibility often leads to stress.http://www.psychology.com/therapist/judycallans for more information.
