Be Grateful for Teen Milestones

Celebrate Teen Milestones

Did you know that dozens of developmental milestones occur during the teen years? It’s a period of growth similar to babyhood when the changes (rolling over, crawling, walking…) come at you a mile per minute. Adolescence is a time to notice (and celebrate!) tons of cool changes.

We’re celebrating teen milestones through November—one per day. We’ve written about these milestones in bite-sized chunks—all under 100 words—and you can read one every day and see if the teens in your life have reached this developmental moment.

Join in the celebration by sharing your teen’s milestones on social media with the hashtag #teenmilestone!
