VALUES DEVELOPMENT FOR TEENAGERS
Teenagers moving into adulthood, during the age of 13 to 21 they develop different values, for example from the age of 8 to 13, they go through a modeling period, this is where they copy people, rather than accept who they truly are, they try on other peoples values for size to see how they feel. Quite often the people they model are the people they look up to or admire,which may be a parent, family member, teacher or friend. This is why quite often they want to have the same pair of shoes and the same brand of jeans as their best friend.
Then they move into the socialization period, from the age of 14 to 21, this is where their peers largely influence them, they naturally aggregate towards like-minded people and form groups. As they develop as individuals, they rebel from their earlier programs (family) or core values and turn to people outside of their family who seem more like them. Other influences at this age include media, especially if it is aligned with their peer group values.
At this age they develop relationships and social values, this is why it is important to coach teenagers to be an individual, to help them find their way and to understand what matters to them the most.
