It explores the following issues:

  • The terrible too’s – how teenagers develop at different rates and many fear they aren’t normal if they don’t look a certain way by a certain     age - worrying about being ‘too tall’, ‘too short’ etc;
  • Questioning everything – how teenagers become more curious during puberty, leading them to question adults and authority but also to become more independent and responsible;
  • Parents – how teenagers’ relationships with parents change during adolescence, which can sometimes cause conflict;
  • Friends – how friendships and relationships become more important as teenagers get older and stress can be caused by peer pressure and the desire to be popular;
  • Getting help – how teenagers can go to people they trust for help and advice - parents, teachers. etc.


The programme’s message is that there is no single “blueprint” for how a teenager is built – what matters most is acceptance of self and others, and the idea that adolescence is not a destination but an important milestone in a journey that lasts a lifetime.
