Adolescence is very difficult to comprehend. The transition from childhood to adolescence leads to internal conflicts among teenagers. This internal conflict and crisis leads to negative impacts, especially when adolescents are unable to address them in a proper manner. These crisis and conflict-prone adolescents require proper guidance from their parents at a very young age, so they are able to adjust to their social surroundings as they reach that confusing period. The adolescent mind pictures themselves as unique individuals well-prepared to project their identity to society, through self-adjustment or forwarding their viewpoints for acceptance. Therefore, identifying both risk and protective factors for adolescents should be a priority because their face demands from society to explain their identity, role, and meaning of their existence.
