    accept the new situation

    What does "the new situation" mean? Like the teenageers' trying to be accepted as an adult even though they are not adults? What example can you think of?

    ex)Almost all teenagers have difficulty with their families. Even the healthiest boys and girls push their parents to validate them as adults before the parents are ready to accept the new situation. All teenagers do some distancing as part of their individuation process...

    Re: accept the new situation

    NOT a teacher! NOT a parental unit!

    As becoming an adult doesn't happen over night, I think it is a process for both sides, children and parents. At some point of this process, adults see their own children as grown-ups. They accept that their children are old enough to live on their own, and don't need their parents the way they needed them as children.
