Quarantined teens

Adolescence is one of the most important transitional stages in human life. As defined by the World Health Organization, it is between the ages of 10 and 19 and is characterized by a number of physical, psychological and intellectual changes. During this stage there is the development of identity where social context and interaction with peers are decisive.

During this period of isolation, one of the most affected processes is socialization. They are friends and group activities inside and outside the school, allowing the teen to build his or her identity, enhancing social life skills and forging bonds.

Quarantine physical isolation should not lead to social or emotional isolation in a teen. Next, I recommend some virtual activities, which, with the help of each family, will allow teenagers not to feel alone and continue to meet their friends, but in a virtual way.
