Judith Welles Cousins: When you look at a teen's behavior and you look at a teen in terms of what their emotions, how their emotions have changed, how they may have changed psychologically, what I tell parents that they are looking for are things like increased irritability, increased mood swings, depression, anxiety, perhaps more anger, perhaps more rational outbursts, more sadness.
