Whether it be regarding public security or for electronic cigarettes to help smokers quit, many parents and children are in a diving stage because of the change it brings upon people. Now some of the things brought upon this change can be bad such as the missuse of the electronic cigaretts by teeneagers thinking it is a “safe route to smoking” when really the device is made to help people quit, not start. Change in general of the technology has worried the parents but has been embraced by the children. Something 's now have trackers in them where parents feel the government is tracking them but really it could possibly later in the future save someone or a school from a mass shooting by tracing that suspicious person. It can be interpreted each way and the die may roll however it wants, but in the end, there is more benefit to the youth culture of the 2000’s than there is danger to the parents of their
Many people use the phrase “ They inherit it from their parents” (Jessica p.1). But as a child, you should have goals to be better than your parents to help them later on in life. However many people are against the fact that they should not be tried as adults and be given a short sentence and tried as juveniles. Juveniles may learn from their mistakes and some may not, however because one does, it doesn’t mean they all will. And those that don’t learn
Many people have a certain opinion when it comes to their standing on tattoos, whether they see them as beautiful pieces of art, or body mutilation, everyone subscribes to a different belief. Many people who see teenagers, believe that these teens are “troubled”, or impulsive and impressionable, which at that point in the brain’s development that may be true, but they never consider that maybe that teen is ready, or is willing to commit to the tattoo simply because it is something that has importance to them. Andres Martin, a child psychiatrist, wrote an article in a 2000 edition of the magazine “Reclaiming Our Children and Youth” about teenagers and tattoos, where he directly addresses the reasons that would support the ideas behind teens getting tattoos.

One way that rap music have become an impact on our youth, is game related, youth violence, racism, drugs etc. All of these shifts and paradigms affect rap music because of the words that some of the rappers use in a way to make about them. Juslin, (2008) stated, “Research indicates that people value music primarily because of the emotions it evokes”. According to, Travis (2012) stated, “To accurately capture, define and disseminate the scope of these trends, Hip-Hop culture and specifically rap music deserve more nuanced analyses and measurements of their use, and the impacts of education, prevention, intervention and social change strategies at both the individual and community level”. In addition to, looking at how hip-hop/rap music have change over the course years, one will understand how it developed as well as a way that an effective youth ministry would take to reach students in the Hip-Hop culture/rap music.
“With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults.”(Berger) The reason why is because their brains are still changing they are still going throw a change they are still growing. The brain where it “regulates aggression, long range planning, mental, flexibility, abstract thinking has not yet been developed.”(Berger) In the article “Justice for Juveniles” a child is tried as an adult his parents don’t want him to go to jail because they say it is too big for him, and he wouldn’t last a day in there. The judge didn’t bother to
Teen on Television Teen portrayals glorify content that may show behavior that should not be performed. Many television producers do not take into consideration how much of an impact it has on young viewers. This is an issue in society because teens assume what is show on television, is okay for them to be involved in such behavior as an everyday lifestyle. Educating these young viewers about these actions is important to many, others may have their own opinions on how to deal with this situation. Portrayals on teens are inappropriate because it can encourage violence, warning against the dangers of sexual activity at a young age, and lack of sex education.
Around the globe many books are banned from schools and libraries because of their content. Though many others disagree with the banning of books, because it takes away freedom of speech. Many books are banned and challenged because their content is considered inappropriate or offensive to the readers. But, others find that it goes against our First Amendment rights when they take away what someone else has written. Butler University also shows other reasons for why books are often times banned.
Sex, money, drugs and violence. When you hear those four words, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Many people would say they think of rap or hip hop. Today, rap music is constantly mistaken for valuing the destruction of communities by promoting images of “the thug life”. However, the hip hop culture can have a positive impact on society.
Hip hop is one of the most controversial music genres, and there have been many arguments arising in regards to whether or not hip hop affects education in a positive way. Many argue no, stating that only negativity can come from hip hop music. Others argue yes, believing that if the negative connotations are put aside, one can truly benefit from what hip hop has to offer. Many find it hard to believe that hip hop artists could actually be encouraging their listeners to get a good education or make good grades. Well, there are several of artists are doing just that.
On the 21st of April, I conducted a survey to observe the behaviors of William Carey Students when they listen to rap. Rap music has been considered the source of aggressive behavior in young adults. Through this survey, I will compare the mood and behavior students have when they are listening to rap. My purpose of this survey is to prove that Rap music does not encourage violence in listeners. This will also hush the critics that condemn Rap music, saying the music glorifies sex and guns.
Sometimes, teens feel pressured and know it is wrong, but because no one is telling them the right thing to do, they figure it’s their only option. According to teenhelp.com, “50% of teens feel pressured in regards to sexual relationships”. This topic is very important due to the fact that more teens everyday, including pre-teens, are being pressured and end up in trouble that they could’ve avoided. Since there isn 't anyone around to give them good advice, they
I actually like some rap music, just not the type filled with curse word after curse word that it becomes hard to distinguish whether this an adult or a third grader kid who just learned the f-word for the first time. I want us to think about what these so called “idols” are saying, some of it 's just hateful that deserves no protection under so called artist creativity or the bullshit people always tell me about how lyrics about hitting women, shooting people,doing drugs have some sort of deeper meaning that display creative genius makes me sick. If anyone wants to let me know where this so called creative genius is, please let me know I still haven’t seen it yet. Sure, it 's fine to stand in a crowd of people, in nice park shouting the word “nigga” and waving your middle finger in the air like a clown, because you want to feel like you are “bad” and rebel, because you get bored of your nice lifestyle and parents that care. That’s a luxury that my campers cannot afford, and would probably do anything for the privileges we take for advantage each and everyday.
Not only has the evolution of hip hop has changed, but the type of hip hop artist has changed also. Back when hip hop was more positive and had a true meaning you could listen to the music and become inspired. Nowadays the artist that makes music aren’t really making music. It’s not about love and peace anymore it’s all about dollar signs, guns, gangs, and drugs. and that is a reason why most rappers these days make poor music.
