What is disquieting about the switch from childhood to adolescence is that it seems to take place overnight!  It is almost like the transformation of a chrysalis into a butterfly (though this metaphor is not really the one which first springs to mind!)  It is almost midnight…Kevin is about to turn 13 and his parents do not even begin to suspect what is in store for them… (My teen students love this sketch as they can recognise themselves in Kevin – my adult students tend to identify with the parents…)
