Adolescence: respecting the stages of development helps to maintain the health of young people
All adolescents between the ages of 10 and 20 are considered to be adolescents by definition of the World Health Organization. It is at this stage that children undergo the changes that transform them, at the end of those 10 years, into adults, amid a turbulence of emotions, experiences and hormones. This phase of transition is naturally slow, both physically and emotionally, but today there is an attempt to accelerate this process, with girls and boys fresh out of childhood trying to behave as adults who have not yet are.
Besides being non-physiological, adult behavior, when it happens early, becomes risk because it affects young immature emotionally. Just look at the streets, in the shopping malls or on the beaches to notice the amount of teenagers of both sexes (most evident in girls) who dress and act as if they are older than they are. In this way the young women attract glances and approaches that they are not prepared for, since they seem to be adult in the eyes of those who see them, but internally they still have a great degree of immaturity, according to their chronological age. an eroticized society in which sexuality is everywhere, whether in digital or written media, in music and dance, at parties and on the street. In Brazil, the average of sexual initiation is around 15 years. According to the National School Health Survey (PeNSE), conducted by the IBGE in 2015, with students from the 9th grade, 27.5% have had at least one sexual relationship in life. As a result of this behavior we have high rates of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases in adolescence.
The search for perfect bodies, based on "photoshopped" figures and "plastified" women is a source of great anguish for adolescents who do not have the patience to wait for their physical maturity and seek aesthetic treatments before even knowing how their bodies will remain. Academies, aesthetic clinics and plastic surgeons have noticed an increase in the number of young people pursuing idealized perfection, often even before menstruating, which is absolutely contraindicated.
Alcohol consumption, also a symbol of reached high rates in adolescence. The PeNSE 2015 showed that among the students of the 9th year of primary education in Brazil, 55.5% have ever consumed alcohol in their lives and 21.4% have already been drunk. In addition to all the physiological problems related to their early consumption, alcoholic adolescents are more easily involved in situations of risk, such as unprotected sexual activity, illicit drug use and various types of violence, either as an offender or as a victim. > Moments of transition are always accompanied by estrangement, insecurities and fears, so the ideal is to experience adolescence as one who tastes a new food with care and curiosity. If lived unhurriedly, adolescence builds healthy bodies and minds, prepared for the challenges of adulthood. When run down, it can cause more than necessary suffering, forming adults with memories and scars that can leave marks for a lifetime.
At all stages of life, medical monitoring is essential to keep health up to date. In addition, routine exams help diagnose diseases and detect health problems in individuals with no symptoms. What began as a simple routine eye exam quickly became the worst nightmare for an Australian family. beginning of the 2017 school year, Lauren Tyrrell decided to take the three daughters to a standard ophthalmic examination.
A new study on early childhood education found increases in stress-related cortisol in children attending the gardens of childhood. The increases were higher in schools where teachers were supercontrollers. The study, published in the journal Child Development , was conducted by researchers at the University of Minnesota, Georgetown University, and the Oregon Social Learning Center in the United States.
