As I'm sure you're experiencing, adolescents are unique. They are a special population that requires more health supervision during this critical period in their lives. Your child needs to build a partnership with his doctor, so he can be prepared for the future. There needs to be a good discussion about physical development, sexual development, healthy habits, how life is with his friends, how he feels about being successful, and his life in the future. We certainly want your son to be well educated about the importance of preventing substance abuse, maximizing his mental health, and developing healthy habits.
What is most important is that your son always be linked to a medical home offering appropriate health services. I recommend he continue getting health supervision by any health professional he feels comfortable with and has confidence in, so that issues and opportunities necessary to care for him are tailored to meet his individual needs.
