This is a theoretical review about adolescence, through a history survey on how this stage has been built on societies, focusing its sociocultural, political, psychological or emotional aspects. We had as objective the identification of elements in literature for a better understanding of the features and curiosities of this stage of life. It is perceived from the approach on the subject that the adolescent requires a careful and, above all, affective attention from the adults with whom they live, considering the vulnerability of their conduct and the need for affirmation.
