• In the final year of high school, much attention will be paid to reaching university-level standards. Your teen might become concerned that she won't measure up once she does get to college.
• Teachers can become very important to your teenager. It's not uncommon for her to like one or two of her teachers very much, look up to them and even talk about becoming a teacher herself.
• Kids of this age will probably be effective problem-solvers who can think critically individually and in groups. Their thought processes will be sharper than ever: They see the complexities of everyday life and the reasons behind political, social and other global problems.
