A fear of teenagers may lead you to avoid places where adolescents hang out or situations in which you might encounter teens. You may even stay away from television shows, movies or social media that feature teenagers. This avoidance can cause you to miss out on fun or necessary parts of life.

Phobias also increase your risk of:

  • Depression, social isolation and suicidal thoughts.
  • Panic attacks and panic disorder.
  • Substance use disorder.
