NEW YORK - Memo to
moody adolescents: If you think
everything has been going
wrong lately, you may be on to
something. Researchers have
found new evidence that one rea
son life is so unhappy for many
young adolescents is that they
face a bumper crop of distressing
What's more, adolescents
seem to be thrown more by a
pileup of bad events than
younger kids are. Evidence for
this double-whammy in early
adolescence is presented in Janu
ary's issue of the journal Devel
opmental Psychology by Reed
Larson of the University of Illi
nois in Urbana and Mark Ham of
the Human Development Center
in Duluth, Minn.
The work supports earlier
studies, commented child devel
opment expert Jeanne Brooks-
Gunn of Columbia University in
New York, adding that even pos
itive events may contribute to an
adolescent's emotional turmoil.
Puberty and the transition to
junior high also generally con
tribute, noted Dr. Daniel Offer,
director of adolescent research at
Northwestern Medical School.
He and Ham studied 483 stu
dents in fifth through ninth
grades. They were drawn from
four predominantly white neigh
borhoods in two Chicago sub
urbs that Larson declined to
identify. The students wore a
beeper for a week. When it
beeped at random times, they
recorded their moods on scales
ranging from happy to unhappy,
friendly to angry and cheerful to
Negative events included
things like worsening relation
ships with parents and siblings,
being disciplined in school,
changing schools, breaking up
with a boyfriend or girlfriend
and falling out with a close
friend or group of friends.
