Adolescence: Much more than a springboard to adulthood

Adolescence is defined as a transitional stage between childhood, which is getting shorter and shorter, and adulthood, which starts later and later. It is a crucial stage in the development of the personality, a great opportunity that life offers us to learn, to experiment according to our own criteria, to make our own mistakes and assume their consequences. It is a period of great intensity, in which we move quickly from black to white, an essential time to get to know each other, to learn to be the adults we will be later on.
