Adolescents are little more set in their ways because they have more history, whereas younger children don’t have as many experiences due to their age. I would tailor my approach with adolescents and younger children not based on their age group and where they should be psychologically by that point, but what their needs are. Some adolescents might have more of a younger child mindset based on trauma, and some younger children may have had to play caretaker at such a young age to their parents so they have more of an adolescent mindset.
