Still image from Real Life Teens: Teen Rebellion

Teen rebellion is a normal part of adolescence. One of the major developmental tasks teens face is developing independence from their parents and becoming their own person. Transitioning from a dependent child to an independent adult not only takes time, but also manifests itself in behavior patterns such as rebellion, defiance, and ambivalence. Teens not only talk about their own experiences with rebellion, but also discuss their attitudes toward rebellion, their parents, school, society, and their peers.
