National Teenager Day

National Teenager Day is an American holiday dedicated to teenagers. This category usually includes people between the ages of 13 and 19. We have to take care of our children who are at this age. They are just taking their first steps into adulthood, trying to find themselves in this world. Accordingly, we get very hot-tempered and at the same time vulnerable people. You have to re-learn how to find common ground with them. It is celebrated annually on March 21.


There is no reliable information about the creation of National Teenager Day. The creators of this day probably decided to talk about the problems of adolescence, as well as to motivate parents to get the help they need for their teenage children.

As a teenager, the child changes a lot. Physical development begins, he grows in height and weight. Boys begin to develop reproductive organs, girls begin to grow breasts, and menstruation appears. The body begins to prepare for offspring, all this happens under the release of a large number of hormones. Along with physical maturation, the child develops mentally: he begins to think about who he wants to see himself in the future, becomes more independent and seeks to make his own decisions.

At this age, children are trying to distance themselves from their parents, and the right decisions are needed here. Parents should not lose sight of the child, so he did not get into bad companies, not addicted to addictions and other things. At the same time, it is necessary to give the child more freedom of action, to trust some things, because he is no longer a child!

Interesting facts

  • In adolescence, interest in past hobbies is often lost. They are replaced by new hobbies, which are likely to remain in adulthood.
  • Girls tend to develop faster than boys. At the same time, they are often already formed by the age of 16, and boys – only by 18 (sometimes 20).
  • During adolescent puberty, the amygdala (the part of the brain responsible for emotions) is in an active phase. For this reason they are impulsive, subject to mood swings, etc.

How to celebrate

Talk to teenagers about growing up. If your child is about to enter this period, you can tell him or her about the changes to come. Avoid being overprotective, while also controlling your child at this age. Teenagers are so vulnerable!

Spread the word on social media. Ask other users what age their children are. Are they ready for their children’s transitions?
