Parents mostly view holding back the truth from their children as a simple means of protection of their children (Bridges, 2010). Parents seek to protect their children from being hurt by information that they view their children cannot handle (Lott, 2014). Matters such as separation of parents have seen to contribute a significant share of the lies that parents feed children. Parents assume that they can withhold the truth from their children about their marital issues thinking that they will tell the truth to their children later in life when they can understand the complexity of the matter at hand. Taking this example, when the children enquire about where their parents are when they are not at home.
Positive or negative Peer Pressure defines an individual. As children grow, parents influence will decline and as children are exposed to other individuals, peer pressure takes place because the attachment of children to their parents are unlike before due to the changes in puberty particularly mood swings (Mempin, et al 2003). The difference between negative and positive peer pressure is the result. The result defines what peer pressure is. Because teenagers develop intimate relationships they tend not to share anymore with their parents feelings of intimacy because they believe that only their friends can understand them since they belong in a similar age group (Psychology Today, 2011).
Teenage pregnancy is rapidly increasing in this generation. Teenage pregnancy leads to teenage parenthood. Teenagers are minors and not proficient for bearing child mentally, physically and financially.

Physical damage can hurt a child in many ways. A child who is having a hard time growing up due to how their parents treat them will most likely get depressed, hard to sleep, over thinking and is hard to communicate with others. As David Elliman argues (2000), “the effect of physical punishment is connected with mental health problems, child abuse, and aggressiveness”. According to this report; Elliman is trying to show that giving out negativity to a child will feel less certain amount itself. In other words, a child will feel whatever they are doing is wrong and judge themselves on everything that happens; they do not feel very optimistic about their
The teens opt for criminal behavior is another consequence of externalizing disorder, as well as antisocial behavior _ to others because of fear of being rejected, the search for attention and thinking problems. Children acquire high levels of hostility and aggression because of the anger they feel toward their parents, because of failing in their material needs care, but more importantly, the emotional need that every child deserves. These young victims of violence and abuse in childhood will repeat or reflect the behavior of their parents, because they think attitudes like abandon, forget, deny, etc. It is acceptable and is used to resolve conflicts or problems.

Now, why do parents become this way? Permissive parents usually become the way they are because they were either raised by permissive parents or “they have an exceptionally laid back attitude and take a haphazard approach to parenting”(Stephan Walton).

Preschooler are likely to become very distressed during visit exchanges.
Changes in body’s balance of hormones may be involved in causing triggering depression among teenagers. However, once they turn into teenager, they will start to learn new ways of how to navigate a complex and unsettling world of social interaction. For instance, popularity among themselves is one of the important issues for them, so lack in popularity might upset them. Other than that, changes in academic such as new classes, new subject and tests can cause them to become depressed, especially if they’re expected to excel at all costs or are beginning to struggle with their course load.
