A teenager or adolescent is a character on the threshold of puberty and responsibility. Interacting with a person of this age can portray the ideas and feelings adopted at that point in your life. The type of interaction will show your current relationship to your sexual feelings or social responsibility as you explore changes. The adolescent in a dream is also symbolic of the development of an emerging side of you. This theme generally begins as accompanying an Unknown Child or giving birth to a baby as a representation of rebirth. When the child becomes an adolescent in the dream, it shows the growth and assimilation that is taking place when you are 're-parenting' yourself. See Unknown Child under Archetypes and Universal Characters and People and Family.
