    The period of adolescence is the one of the most difficult periods in a person's life.  During adolescence, there is a gradual transition from childhood to adulthood.   In fact, adolescents have multiple personalities, fluctuating between being a child and being an adult.  In adolescence, peers often become just as important than parents.

    In adolescence, the peer relationship is often the learning and testing group.  Many teenagers discover themselves through relationships with their peers.  For many teenagers, having a lot of friends is the hallmark of being successful and included.   Many teenagers believe that being popular is the most important thing in their lives. 

    There are teenagers who would do anything to be popular, even if it is wrong.  Being included in the group is so important that often a teenager's individuality is sacrificed.  The worst thing to the teenaged mind is to be excluded from the crowd.  To the average teenager, being unpopular is akin to the kiss of death.   What are your thoughts on this?
