Effects Of Social Anxiety On Teen Relationships

1 - Difficulty forming friendships - Teens experiencing social anxiety often have difficulty forming friendships. Because teens with social anxiety become very nervous around peers, they will often hesitate to begin conversations or engage in activities. Being unable to form friendships with peers can be a major problem for the overall development of teens.

2 - Depression - Teens with social anxiety will often experience depression due to their difficulty in forming relationships with peers. This initially leads to isolation which can later develop into full depression. Depression can be a devastating condition which in extreme cases can even result in suicide. Because of how serious depression can be, it is important to address social anxiety as early as possible..3 - Problems with parents - The parents of teens with social anxiety often have a difficult time understanding the issue their son or daughter is facing. This can lead to arguments and relationship problems. It is important to avoid this outcome, as teens with social anxiety are often already very isolated and losing a close relationship with parents can be very harmful
