Growth and Development, Ages 15 to 18 Years (cont.)

What to Expect
Teens grow and develop at different rates. But general teen growth and development patterns can be grouped into four main categories.
Growth and development does not always occur evenly among different categories. For example, your teen may have a tremendous growth spurt and look almost like an adult but may seem socially and emotionally young for his or her age. Eventually, most teens mature in all areas of growth and development, especially if given the right tools and parental guidance.
