Insecurity is the uncertainty or anxiety of oneself which an abundance of teenagers have been found to struggle from. Sometimes, a person's insecurities can cause them to be someone who they are not. However insecurities are usually caused by someone mocking you of your differences, which eventually causes themselves to try to exemplify someone they believe is better than them self, instead of expressing their differences.

Adolescence is a transitional stage that occurs in everyone’s life, generally accompanied with inquisitiveness towards life and revelations about oneself. As this complex period of life progresses, young adults and teenagers alike seek to cement their identities in the world and find who they truly are comfortable being. Unfortunately, the parents of these young adults may not be so thrilled with the result, as restless spirit Karen Arnold of the popular television series The Wonder Years discovers. In the episode “The House That Jack Built”, the fissure found in the foundation of the Arnold household serves as an extended metaphor, symbolizing the ever-growing rift between parent and adult child, and in a more literal sense, that despite one’s best efforts to make amends, sometimes foundations simply cannot be repaired. This is demonstrated by Jack’s reaction to the surprise appearance of Michael, and subsequently, the resulting fight between Jack and Karen, which

I am learning to keep the good memories that I have cherished since August 2007. A put a smile on my face and remember that David would not want me to be sad. David has had the most impact on me; he taught me how to serve others before myself, be sarcastic, stay positive, and enjoy life.
The opening stories, those dealing with childhood, are written in first person narrative, through the eyes of a boy and present the beginning of paralysis describing the frustration of the boy’s increasing desire to escape from the tedious Dublin life. In each story, the child is frustrated by his environment which progressively corrupts and imposes its values on him. In the stories of adolescence (with “adolescence” Joyce did not refer to the physical stage, but to a stage of spiritual immaturity) the characters are defeated by the obstructing fears and prejudices the city has planted in them; they are unable to react and follow their hopes (paralysis of the will) The following stories, advancing in time and expanding in scope, concern the middle years of the characters and their social, political or religious affairs.

Biff thought and believed this to a point that he followed everything his dad said and is now struggling to find himself in life without the popularity.
Throughout this part of the novel i have to admit i felt really bad for his friend Hassan because he is a really great friend of Amir but it seems to me that Amir does not truely respect and honor his friends loyalty and love for him.

I am anxious to see how the new Amir develops and becomes more of a man and to see what decisions he will make and how he will handle these new situations he will soon be
According to Dr. Laurence Steinberg, the brain is still developing maturely in the teen years and well into their mid 20s in areas like reasoning and judgment (Patti R., 2015, P 1). This is a huge reason why teens are so susceptible to peer pressure. We can’t always be sure of what drives a young teen to commit a crime, but there are certain risk factors that make them more vulnerable to criminal activity. A risk factor is a personal characteristic or environmental condition that helps predict the onset, continuity, or escalation of violence. Some of the top risk factors are: family issues, psychological/mental characteristics, peer influence and socioeconomic status (What Causes Someone, 2016).
