With the continuous development of society, the competition among the members of the society is becoming increasingly fierce, and the culture is becoming more diversified. In view of this, adolescents are prone to psychological problems in the process of growing up.

Teenagers’ psychological problems have become a serious social problem. Based on this, from the perspective of socialization, this paper studies the main psychological problems of teenagers, explores their origin and finds out corresponding countermeasures, in order to provide some reference for preventing and solving common psychological problems of teenagers.
