Teens and Adult Status

Many cultures around the world have well-established traditions around the transition to adulthood. How do young people in New Zealand know they have entered adulthood? Do we provide them with any solid markers to reflect their increasing maturity? Teens need to know that we recognise their growing capacity for independence and making smart choices.

Consider creating some rites of passage for your family. Whether these revolve around travel, part-time jobs, or increased responsibilities at home, let your teenagers know that they are taking concrete steps on the path to adulthood. Celebrate and encourage them along the way, perhaps with a family dinner that includes speeches in their honour, or a small gift. Rites of passage make young people feel capable and respected, and give them a sense of place and security in the family and society.
