Adolescence or the teenage is the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood, where the changes affects and confuses the child since they feel both a sense of disorientation and discovery. It is in this stage that a child is weakest mentally and emotionally and needs independence as well as a strong support since the issues they deal with in their day-to-day lives are sensitive. Identity issues, friendship, romantic interests, career, schoolwork, sexuality, social life, adventure, familial issues, sibling rivalry are some of the issues faced by teens everywhere. These issues need to be addressed timely as they tend to increase in importance during the transition into adulthood.

Proper addressing of these psychosocial, neurodevelopmental changes and emotional changes help in increasing cognitive and intellectual capacities including stronger reasoning skills, logical and moral and abstract thinking.

Child abuse can be physical, emotional, verbal, or sexual. It is wide spread and can occur in any cultural, ethnic, or income groups. It can result serious injury to the child, both physically and mentally and can possibly cause death. Child safety is one of the most crucial matters that need to be addressed in any social setting for physiological well- being and justice system. Mishandling a Child is more than wounds and broken bones, since it scars them for life. By finding out about general precursors of abuse and what we would be able to do intervene, we can have an enormous effect in a child’s life. Children’s lives are shaped by their experiences including what happens in their environment (such as homes, schools and neighbourhoods) and the type of relationships they have with parents, teachers, and other caretakers. Close and trusted relationships with aseptic environments are necessary to avoid negative experiences and are also necessary to assure the long-term physical and emotional well-being of children.

Autoimmune diseases in children are rare, and hence challenging to diagnose and treat when it occurs. Autoimmune disorders are mostly chronic and studies are still trying to find the root cause and prognosis of autoimmune disorders. Disorders that result from any unusual immune response are termed as autoimmune disorders.  Autoimmune disease is a state arising from antibody-mediated immune response abnormalities to a normal body part. If a pregnant woman has an autoimmune disorder — for example, lupus — those antibodies can be passed through the placenta to the infant, who then will have the identical antibodies for about four to six months and may have symptoms, which are then called neonatal lupus. In an autoimmune disease, a mutation causes the immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues and can affect any part of the body but mostly target connective tissues (skin, muscle and joints). Symptoms are fatigue, rashes, and in worst cases- seizures.
