2.      Teenagers and Adolescents
When teenagers and adolescents are under stress they tend to lack self esteem, become angry for longer periods of time, sometimes they will do everything they are asked to do and other times they will rebel and do nothing they are supposed to do.
They may also take part in bad habits such as smoking, drugs, shoplifting. However, more importantly this stress at this age may lead to worse conditions such as depression and may also result in suicides. Thus, it is extremely crucial that if you notice these signs or symptoms of stress that you try to combat it immediately.
