Intended Learning Outcomes

Teens are going through growing stages; they are concerned about having their ideas challenged and have strong feelings concerning various issues. It is healthy for teens to have thoughts of their own. Both youth and adults are going through growing stages. Teens have a difficult time accepting advice from their own parents. Teens showing responsibility receive more freedom and rights.
