As a teen, you may experience challenges and triumphs. Physical changes can occur outside and inside your body that are confusing for some. For example, your brain begins to develop its frontal lobe during puberty and continues into adulthood. The frontal lobe connects the logical and emotional centers and allows you to use reason and emotion to make healthy decisions. During adolescence, you may feel you are constantly learning new skills and developing a sense of who you are as an individual.
