Raising a bipolar teen may prove to be a challenge especially if you do not know whether or not he is bipolar. You may be asking yourself the question: is my teen bipolar? In order to know whether your teen is bipolar or not there are some symptoms that you need to look for. For starters it is very important to know that bipolar teens usually have a combination of manic (extremely high) and depressed (low) moods. Such moods usually alternate or even at times feel a combination of manic and depressed feelings at almost the same time. The bipolar syndrome mostly affects people in the adult stage but not above 35. As much as it occurs in children it is quite rare among them. Such mood variations usually make it very hard for parents to raise a bipolar teen. Bipolar teen symptoms usually differ according to whether it is manic or depressed. Signs of a bipolar teen suffering from manic moods include:Mood changes that are quite severe compared to other aged the same and come from a similar background with him. The teen may appear to be excessively happy or silly and at times irritating. Always unrealistically high with self-esteem. Increasingly talkative as well as keeps changing topics very fast.

Frequently complaining of pains mostly headaches and stomachaches. Exhibits poor concentration tendencies as well as bore dome and low energy levels. Sleeping and eating patterns are changed. He may oversleep or overeat. Parenting a bipolar teen may be a challenge especially due to the fact that they tend to display characters that are similar to teenagers that have other problems including drug abuse, schizophrenia and delinquency. It is therefore important that as a parent of a bipolar teen to find professional help for you to be able to understand your teen so as not to be in a position to make any mistakes. Such a diagnosis can only be done by a competent doctor as well as a child and adolescent psychologist. Living with a bipolar teen my also prove irritating at times especially for the siblings hence they need to be enlightened on their sibling's condition for them to be able to understand the bipolar teen within the family or class.

Understanding Teenage Anxiety

If you’re the parent of a teenager experiencing chronic anxiety, this book is for you. Today’s teens are high-strung and socially overextended. We shrug it off as a millennial problem, but is it? In a world that encourages the quick fix, instant gratification, and real-time feedback, can we really expect our children to cope as we did less than two decades ago, in the land of handshakes, eye contact, elbow grease, and grit? This book is a product of a combination of three very different perspectives: those of the anxious teen, the parent, and the therapist. We need to understand what we’ve created in terms of our current society to gain proper insight on why we’re seeing increasingly rising levels of anxiety in our teenagers. Topics include: Physical and Emotional Symptoms of Anxiety Teens and Self-Harm Anxiety and Gut Health Sports: Concussions and Anxiety Natural Ways to Help Your Teen Cope And much, much more Within each chapter, author (and parent) Jennifer Browne and co-author (Jennifer’s teenage son) Cody Buchanan, who struggles with anxiety and depression, will weigh in on what this affliction feels like, physically, mentally, and emotionally. They share personal experiences to help parents better understand their teens and learn a lot along the way.

Adolescent Coping

Young people need to cope in a variety of settings, including school, home, peer groups and the workplace, and with a range of life problems such as examinations and parental divorce. This thoroughly revised and updated new edition of Adolescent Coping presents the latest research and applications in the field of coping. It highlights the ways in which coping can be measured and, in particular, details a widely used adolescent coping instrument. Topics include the different ways in which girls and boys cope, coping in the family, how culture and context determine how young people cope, decisional coping, problem solving and social coping, with a particular emphasis on practice. Each topic is considered in light of past and recent research findings and each chapter includes quotations from young people. While topics such as depression, eating disorders, self-harm and grief and loss are addressed, there is a substantial focus on the positive aspects of coping, including an emphasis on resilience and the achievement of happiness. In addition to the wide-ranging research findings that are reported, many of the chapters consider implications and applications of the relevant findings with suggestions for the development of coping skills and coping skills training. Adolescent Coping will be of interest to students of psychology, social work, sociology, education and youth and community work as well as to an audience of parents, educators and adolescents.
