Adolescence in Contemporary Families

  • Suzanne K. Steinmetz


Adolescence, that unique period of age between childhood and adulthood, has been defined as the period of “stress and storm,” or the “awkward age.” Identifying the years encompassing the period defined as adolescence is beset with conceptual problems. Puberty, for example, may not be a good indicator because increased standards of health care and nutrition have caused the onset to occur earlier in successive generations of adolescents (i.e., referred to as the secular trend). Another problem in defining the parameters of adolescence results from the increased length of compulsory education and the increased number of youth who continue their education beyond high school. The result is that many young people delay their transition into full-time employment and marital and family roles, with the period of adolescence being extended and lasting longer than it did in the past.
