Adolescence, sport, and personal growth

Javier Olivera Betrán

Original Language



Adolescents are a complex and difficult group of the population due to the deep changes which they experience and the challenges and pressures which overcome them, because they don’t have the suficient maturity and autonomy but posses a great sensitivity and energy although conditioned by a constant of emotional inestability. Oftenly, adolescence has been missinterpreted and worstly solved by adults in social and educative processes which have been articulated for their appropriate development towards the search of the autonomous maturity. Adolescents, in the transition process which they develop between the childhood stage until they reach the adult stage, they oftenly feel misundertood, insecure and unsatisfied; which we can identify by the abandonment of good habbits and activities and by the acquisition of other conducts, oftenly rejectable, with self-affirmation character, which become a real shout at parents, educators, and society in general, to claim attention and comprehension during their personal growth.
