Most adolescents are full of optimism and represent a positive force in society, an asset now and for the future as they grow and develop into adults. When supported, they can be resilient in absorbing setbacks and overcoming problems. Adolescents are at risk of early and unwanted pregnancy, of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV and AIDS, and vulnerable to the dangers of tobacco use, alcohol and other drugs. Many are exposed to violence and fear on a daily basis. Some of the pressures adolescents are under, or the choices they make, can change the course of their young lives, or even end them.
A DISCUSSION ON HOW TEENAGERS TREAT THEIR ELDES NOWADAYS Every teenager has a problem and there is no doubt about it. As any parent of a teenager knows that discipline can be difficult and confusing issue, of course a teenager also knows what good behavior is and which is the right way to comfort and make their elders happy. The teenagers of nowadays grow up in different social structures unlike those in the past. In The Vanishing Adolescent Edgar Friendenberg (1959, pp.15) postulates an essential incompatibility between modern society and adolescence as a unique developmental period. In his view adolescence identity formation proceeds mainly with society.
It is a period where the student develops their talents and attitudes, and trying to find what they want to do further in their life. It is a period where the need for independence arises and the peer pressure increases. Teenagers in this stage may also test their boundaries, trying new things and rebelling against authority figures, which may lead to conflicts arising. They also have a greater sense of privacy, and developing healthy relationships and strong bonds with their close friends and peers are crucial for normal, social and emotional development. Overall, the social and emotional development in teenagers in high school is a period of self-exploration and actualization, as they become more independent and self-reliant.
The movie does not exactly enlighten all the issues that adolescents are going through, but it provides a story of a boy who overcame the things that were holding him back. This movie can be used as a motivation for others who are dealing with similar situations. Conclusion Adolescents experience a large amount of change including puberty, high school, and romantic relationships. Depression and suicide are among some of the most challenging experiences that an adolescent can face on top of all the other changes. The media can have a negative impact on adolescents through the messages they portray in different situations.

TITLE Adolescence is an important time in a person’s life, and many things can cause it to be a stressful time where young adults are trying to find themselves and where they fit in society. One of the most stressful aspects of adolescence is the importance that adolescents place on being accepted by their group of friends and feeling like they fit in. Popularity is important throughout a person’s life, and there is a great amount of importance placed on finding the right clique or group of friends during the adolescent years. Befriending the popular group in school can boost a person’s social position, and it also gives them more power and influence. There are five pathways or routes that adolescents can take in order to be accepted by their peers, and these are conformity, achievement, participation, physical attractiveness, and deviance.
Teenage is a time of developing independence. Changes in attention, motivation and risk taking actions are the typical changes in the behaviors of the teenage.

According to Baron & Richardson (1994), Aggression is a feeling of expression which can be seen externally and is expected to cause harm to the other person who does not wish to be harmed.
Adolescence is the developmental stage that lies between childhood and adulthood. Which simply means that in this phase of your life you are neither a child nor and adult which brings about role confusion and the search for identity.
