There is a significant development of the psyche. Significantly developing memory. The child possesses the ability to purposefully and randomly memorize the educational material studied at school. Further development of oral and written language. The vocabulary is increasing. Children operate with increasingly complex grammatical constructions. In direct connection with the development of speech, there is an improvement in mental activity. Students learn more and more abstract concepts. At a higher level, they perform mental actions. The answers are becoming more substantive and evidence-based.
Students are able to establish complex causal relationships. Significant changes occur in the emotional sphere. The feelings of a teenager are becoming more deeply and differentiated. The scope of interests is expanding. This in turn is associated with increased knowledge. An important incentive for the development of interests is the participation of children in extracurricular activities. Many teenagers study in a variety of circles.

The circle of teenagers is expanding. Their relationship with others is becoming more meaningful and diverse. The position of the teenager in the family is changing. Adults provide children of this age with greater independence. Teenagers are increasingly taking part in family life (discuss common problems, participate in economic activities, etc.).

  5. The crisis of adolescence
    A detailed analysis of foreign concepts of the causes and manifestations of the crisis of adolescence was carried out by D. I. Feldstein [15]. He indicates that the first who drew attention to a new social phenomenon - the teenage period of development, was J. Zh. Rousseau. In his novel Emil, published in 1762, he first drew attention to the psychological significance that this period has in human life. Russo
  6. ADOLESCENCE (13 - 16 years old)
    The adolescent period is not distinguished in all societies, but only with a high level of civilization.

  9. Adolescence in the light of different concepts
    There are many fundamental studies, hypotheses, and theories of adolescence. The “discovery” of adolescence in psychology is rightfully owned by S. Hall. Based on the theory of recapitulation developed by him, S. Hall believed that the adolescent stage in the development of the individual corresponds to the era of romanticism in the history of mankind and reproduces the era of chaos, when natural aspirations
  10. Leading activities in adolescence
    The teenager continues to be a schoolboy; educational activity remains relevant, but psychologically recedes into the background. The main contradiction of the adolescent period is the child’s persistent desire to recognize his personality as adults in the absence of a real opportunity to establish himself among them. D.B.

  11. Myths and realities of adolescence
    I will not be mistaken if I say that of all periods of a child’s development, the most puzzling, difficult and even dangerous is adolescence. This is the period that brings the biggest headache to parents and teachers, ordinary people and law enforcement agencies. This is the same period that gave rise to the concepts of “the problem of fathers and children” and “generational conflict”. Finally, this is the same age for which
