Signs of a troubled teenager:
•Secretive behavior Changes in sleeping and eating habits
• Teenagers grades have rapidly dropped and your teen has lost interest in the usual activities.
• Your youngster has stolen money from your purse on regular occasions.
• Your youngster has extreme mood swings, from depression to elation, and seems to sleep a lot more than usual at times.
• Teenagers become more mysterious, and it seems like more than a desire for greater privacy.

Teens do not want to share their problems to a parent who lectures them and criticizes every move. Teenagers need someone who they can expel their frustrations to and release that internal tension which is ever-present in any teen, but much more so in an anxiety sufferer. They need to know that they can trust you. Find activities to help get rid of the restlessness, and do not discourage a teenager from becoming independent. You should need to pay attention to the warning signs, and if your teenager is suffering, call your doctor or local mental health expert for help, because no one can do it alone.
