The present article intends to describe the mothers' knowledge on the challenges faced by adolescents. Most of the parents do not recognize the issues of their children. Children express stress in their behaviours. Adolescents face various issues at family, school, and society, such as poverty, adjustment problem, broken family, frequent fights at home, death of the parents, single child, no place to play, homework issues, difficulty in understanding the lesson, and other developmental issues. If suitable help is not provided in time, it affects their future as an adult. The formal academic system may not permit a teacher to handle children with psycho- social issues. The teachers' role is limited to classroom teaching. This article makes an effort to assess the knowledge of mothers about the challenges faced by adolescents. The researcher has collected data from the mothers of children, who are studying in the high schools of the selected schools of Bengaluru using the questionnaire method.
