Strong social networks help teens care for others
A new study finds that as formal means of social support wane during adolescence, a teen's respect for the social welfare of others also declines. However, when young people feel supported from their social circles, their concern for others rebound. University of Rochester researchers discovered that as life becomes more complicated during adolescence, relationships change. "Young people often perceive relationships they have as being less supportive during middle and early high school years," said Dr. Laura Wray-Lake, an assistant professor in psychology at the University of Rochester.
