Teens take a lot of heat for being inherently and chronically moody. They typically scoff at authority and often act like they’ve gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. (Sorry, I say this with much respect for teens, so if I offend any haphazard teen out there reading this, my apologies; virtually everyone goes through this phase, so it’s a relatively fair comment to make, generally speaking of course).
But here’s the kicker: which of the following do you attribute this behavior to?
a) Social pressures
c) A developing brain and psychological profile
d) All of the above
If you answered D, you’re right—partially. Now, we can say there’s one more ingredient at play here: insomnia.
