When a teenager has an identity crush the parents should try to understand where the teenager is coming from looking up to their identity crushes and always try to be understanding and supportive towards their children’s identity crushes. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses Romeo and Friar Laurence’s relationship as an identity crush. Because whenever Romeo is stuck in a situation where he needs some help in making the right choices he always goes to Friar Laurence and ask him what to do. Romeo looks up to Friar Laurence as a mentor: “Holy Saint Francis! What a change is here!
Romeo and Juliet, a tragic love play written by Shakespeare, circles two adolescents in lust, which some can say it can portray teenagers in real life. When watching or reading, it is common to see both Romeo and Juliet making shallow decisions, resulting to the end of their lives. Science can show the way human brains develop from the rear to the front, which can explain why teenagers are more prone to making illogical choices during this era.

Hermia accuses Helena of stealing her lover and threatens her by saying, “how low am I?

The play is about these two teenagers during the Renaissance who fall in love, but they are from different families, Capulet and Montague who are in a prolonged quarrel. Despite the obstacles, Romeo and Juliet wed and a sequence of events cause Romeo and Juliet both to die. There are multiple occasions where fate gets in the way of Romeo and Juliet such as when Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo being banished, Juliet being forced to marry Paris, the failure of Romeo being informed of Juliet’s fake death and Romeo killing himself.
First, Romeo acts on how he’s feeling at that moment. Then, Juliet is so self-conscious that she threatens to kill herself over a guy she barely knows and just met. Finally, they both take an irrational risk by going behind their parents backing by getting married, knowing the consequences. Adolescent brain development is explaining the way adolescents brains work and develop, “Romeo and Juliet” is just an example of how adolescent brain works and some of the things that it may
