Adolescence is a stage of life characterized by a marked and dififficult psysical, psychological and social development in which the young must face different daily problems and vital stressors. Knowing and classifying the conflicts that most worry the teenager might be used to direct the educative projects or therapeutic intervention more efficients. In this paper, problems perceived as more stressing have been codified and quantified through Adolescent's Problems Differential Analysis and Coding System using a sample of minors leaving in a residential child care. A comparison between housed teenagers and those who live with their parents show that housed minors (between 11 and 17 years old) rise different vital situations in every single category. An outstanding fact is the high percentage of interpersonal problems with other house mates and related to sports and leisure time.
