  • Live From The Hometown Streets Of A Fascist’s Paradise

    1636 words, 7 pages

    A brain-piercing buzz sends the street lights into vibrating spasms, as Aden enters the familiar, distraught panic of ten o’clock. For reasons he and most others do not know, the onerous loudspeakers on the light posts drone on like a perpetual car wreck for a full four minutes, unapologetic for their gifts in causing hearing loss. The children of Aden’s street scurry into their homes as cockroaches do when the light flicks on, exposing them to Raid and stomping shoes. None would dare stay even half way into the auditory barbed wire, for “they” were already coming. Though this was certainly be

    Adolescent Sexuality Trends On my review towards adolescents and their sexuality behavior and trends, I was able to find quite a large range of information towards the reasons adolescents would develop these behaviors and the explanation for these acts. I will start by talking about the adolescent psychology stage; I will be comparing views from three noted theories regarding adolescent psychology- of Coleman, Freud and Blos. Secondly, the influence towards adolescents; as in peer pressure, the media, and teenage trends. The risk adolescents are taking and ways to prevent adolescents

    Teenage Prejudice And Discrimination

    2387 words, 10 pages

    There are a vast number of current events that concern me as a citizen of the United States of America, such as, the war on terror, the proposal to lowering the drinking age, legalization of marijuana, and the recent massive E-coli breakouts. These are all the worries of United States of America, but a concern that is mostly overlooked by United States citizens is my largest concern and that is discrimination against teenagers. This is my largest concern because we are the United State’s future, we are the generation of decision makers for the United States, and we will continue to pave the

    Lowering The Legal Drinking Age

    1108 words, 5 pages

    Lowering the Legal Drinking Age The question is simple. Should a law be passed that would allow an 18 year old teenager purchase alcohol? Drinking at an early age can cause issues in a person’s life. I you took the time to think about, how misguided and immature some young adults are. You would have no other choice but to reconsider passing the law. Every year alcohol is responsible for half of all murders, accidental deaths, and suicides, one third of all drowning, boating, and aviation deaths, half of all crimes, and almost half of all fatal automobile accidents. Today, most young adult

    Bad Driving

    997 words, 4 pages

    Bad driving has been a major concern globally for quite some time now. Bad driving means drivers are not adhering to the road safety act. They frequently violate traffic laws, much to the irritation of other motorists. For example, it is not unusual to observe a jitney driver speeding through a red traffic signal, creating a middle lane or driving on the sidewalk in order to get ahead of other drivers. In addition, many of these drivers are extremely rude and disrespectful. They stop in the middle of the street to pick up passengers, and if another driver blows his horn to hurry them al

    Human Sexuality And The Media

    1003 words, 5 pages

    Teenagers are being exposed to large amounts of sexual content in today’s media. How is this exposure affecting the behaviors and attitudes of today’s teens? Most exposure comes from television, music, and video games. Much of the development of unhealthy sexual values is the result of an onslaught of attitudes which are becoming culturally acceptable as a result of the activities delivered through media and social media. The acts do not come with an understanding of how incorrect behaviors promoted in various forms of media can undo an individual’s life for many years

    Shakespeare Still Has Relevance Today

    1006 words, 5 pages

    Teenagers have a lot on their minds these days. “Does he like me?” “What do they think of me?” and “Why doesn’t my hair look like hers?” are some of the things we tend to stress about at this time in our lives. So would the teenagers of this generation link their lives to the likes of “Othello”? Not likely. The interesting thing though that many people wouldn’t think, is that the themes in Shakespeare are, in fact quite common in our day to day lives. A large amount of teenagers would say the plays are too old and that the connection has been lost forever, especially th

    “Discrimination due to age is one of the great tragedies of modern life. The desire to work and be useful is what makes life worth living, and to be told your efforts are not needed because you are the wrong age is a crime.” Johnny Ball. The crimes committed today are greatly increased by both young and older adults in the world. Even though Youth Music/ TV negatively influence teenagers, people should see that most teenagers are victims of age discrimination because they are often used as a scapegoat for more mature people's behavior and they are most blamed for theft and anti-social behavio

You may think of yourself as a good parent, that everything you have done is to your children's best interest and that you have endeavoured not to make the same mistakes your parents made with you.

    The Crisis Of The American Teenager

    As we reached the new millennium, youth and teenagers are in a state of recklessness and revolt. If I search the internet right now, I’ll find millions of reasons of how bad my generation is. I’ve found things such as “Peer Pressure”, “Parental Pressure”, “Drugs and Alcohol”, and the big one “Suicide”. I’ve seen it all. What can I say, us teens we go wherever there is excitement. We try stuff we never tried before just for the heck of it. On the other hand, our parents blame it on a lot of stuff around us. They blame it on the media, peers, or the a-a-a-a-alcoho

    Teens Growing Pains: Disconnection Between Adolescents, Adults, And Society

    1507 words, 7 pages

    There has always been a disconnection between adolescents, adults, and society. However, I believe the interaction between adolescents and adults today has become distinct. Adolescents are those from the age of 13-19. The hardest part about being a teen, is peer Pressure. The constant worrying about their looks, clothes and possessions that other kids have. They also worry about their relationships do they have enough friends, do they have girlfriend/boyfriend. Finally, they worry if they measure up to their parents expectations. The hardest part about being a teen is the co

    Marketing Research & Promotional Message Introduction In today’s marketing world, different age groups can also be analyzed because they normally have distinctive values and behaviors. However, marketers must be cautious about segmenting consumers based on their actual age. Marketers have long tried to appeal to consumers in terms of their personality characteristics (Schiffman, Kanuk, Wisenblit 2010). I will be focusing on the teenage consumer group. The question most marketers that target teenage consumer ask is why do teenage consumers make decisions to buy the products they buy?

    Old Enough To Die In War But Not To Drink A Beer

    1779 words, 8 pages

    The legal drinking age in the United States is set at twenty-one years of age. I believe that considering twenty-one as the legal age of maturity is absurd. Who is it to say that just because an individual is twenty-one means that they are mature enough to consume alcohol in a responsible manner? Eighteen year-olds can take on many adult responsibilities, but they do not have the right to consume alcohol. This is why maturity should be measured in other ways than age, and it is silly to be concerned about what another adult puts in their body just because it isn’t healthy. I believe that the n

    Teenage Smoking

    The smoking of cigarettes is said to be the most over-practiced addiction in the world. According to the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of teenage smokers constitute nearly 40 percent of all teenagers. This percentage continues to increase despite the fact the oral and medical complications that arise from smoking are publicly exposed and taught in school. Why is this so? Perhaps it is a result from peer pressure? Could it be an emotional escape for teenagers dealing with difficult situations? Maybe it is fun and exciting for a teenager to rebel and start

    Well, children, fellow teens and anyone else who happens to be here listening to me. Where there is much racket there must be something out of kilter. I believe that between parents always misjudging and grownups frequently misunderstanding the teenagers of this generation, they’ll be in a fix soon. But what’s all of this talking really about? The older people always say that teenagers are irresponsible, that they shouldn’t be trusted with specific tasks. But I have a job. I work and make money just as they do. And ain’t I a teenager?
