What is Normal Adolescent Behavior?

"My 14-year-old son has recently become more argumentative with me. Is this normal or does he need adjustments to his medication?"

by Michele Novotni, Ph.D.


One easy way to tell if your son's behavior is medication-related is to look at whether his behavior is better on or off medication. It is also possible that due to hormonal changes, his present medication is not sufficient. If the behaviors do not seem to be medication related, counseling may provide the help you are seeking.
