Why doesn't the Bible mention Jesus Christ's child/teen years?

Because apart from when young Jesus was found in the temple with the elders, his childhood and teen years where irreverent. Jesus grew in statue and wisdom and in favor of both God and humans.

That part was excerpted, but is still available. It is called the Infancy Gospel of Thomas.

The same reason video game characters don't need to sleep. It's not important to the narrative.

The record of Jesus’ early life is very brief. Born in Bethlehem of Judea, King David’s native city, he was taken to Nazareth in Galilee after the family returned from Egypt all of this in fulfillment of divine prophecy.
Of the first years of Jesus’ life nothing is known except that the young child continued growing and getting strong, being filled with wisdom, and God’s favor continued upon him. Lu 2:40
In course of time the family grew as four sons and some daughters were born to Joseph and Mary. Mt 13:54-56 So, Mary’s firstborn son did not grow up as an only child.
There is nothing to indicate that Jesus had or exercised any miraculous powers during his childhood years.
The changing of water to wine at Cana, performed during his ministry, was the beginning of his signs.
He regularly attended the synagogue services each Sabbath. He was educated, as is shown by his ability to find and read sections from the Sacred Writings.
His childhood and the growing-up process, like his birth, were necessary, though incidental, means to an end.
Joseph taught Jesus the trade of carpentry, and no doubt both Joseph and Mary called upon Jesus, the firstborn, to help them with the care of their other children, numbering at least six. Mark 6:3
While still at home, Jesus continued subject to his parents, all the time progressing in wisdom and in physical growth.
As the oldest son, Jesus probably helped to care for the family, particularly since it appears that Joseph died before Jesus.
It is quite probable, then, that the long period of years, to the time of his baptism, was spent in the performance of the ordinary duties of life.

Because that part of the story wasn't made up yet.

There is some information, but other times are not included, because it wasn't information that the Lord wanted in the Bible. The main focus is salvation which Jesus purchased for us with His death and blood that paid for all of our sins in full. Here is the truth: The Lord Jesus Christ is God. Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, or not. The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. It is too late to be saved, after death.
Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ means being forgiven all sins past and future and means going to heaven. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing on Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven
