Teenage Stress Stress is basically, defined as an applied force or system of forces that tends to strain or deform a body. A mentally or emotionally disruptive or upsetting condition occurring in response to adverse external influences and capable of affecting physical health. Teenagers today have a lot of stress because of a lot of different reasons. However, there are three main things in my opinion that cause stress for teenagers which are school related issues, relationships, and peer pressure.
These things can cause teenagers to do things that they thought they were not capable of, which could be good or bad, depending on the situation. Firstly, school related issues are the main cause for teenage stress these days. It can be caused by them being pushed to hard by their parents or teachers, because for some a lot is expected of them. It can also be caused by them doing so badly in school they gave up all hope of them doing something worthwhile with their lives or it could be caused by them just not living up to their own standards.
Secondly, another cause of teenage stress is their relationships. Relationship stress can be caused by them not living up to their partner's expectation or just plainly by them breaking up with someone that they thought they really did care for. Also, it can be caused by an individual liking someone a lot and the feeling is not mutual. All of these aspects can cause teenagers to feel like their in way over their heads.
