Teenage girls think of how much trouble she can cause for somebody if she doesn’t like the person. A single lie could give somebody into deep trouble, such as a teacher for example. The teenager would lie about her assignments are completed and the teacher would reply about how the teenager never completed the assigned homework. The teenager goes to her parents or guardians and says she finished the assignments, but, she never finished or even touched the assignments. The teenager
The age of adolescence, is what I find to believe, the age of rebelliousness. As we make the transition from being a child, to an adult, we start to make our own decisions. No longer do we listen to the constant blabbering of someone telling us, what is right, and what is wrong for us. Instead, we break free from the ones controlling us, and find our own path, rather than travelling in the direction they are pushing us towards. From a young age, we must learn how to make our own judgement of things, and learn how to fend for ourselves. We cannot rely on others to guide us through life forever. Nor should we let them control, or influence our thoughts. This is the message that the author’s of, “Harrison Bergeron”, and, “The Metaphor”, by Kurt
In the article “What if the Secret to Success is Failure?” By Paul Tough, Tough wrote an article about educators, psychologist, and sociologist doing research and experiments on if character is important to the success of students. Randolph, who is 49, is the administrator of a competitive school and is leading the charge on if character is really important piece on helping students get better in school. First Randolph experimented with using character report cards that students would be tested on and that teachers would personally grade the student(self-evaluation). Then Randolph would see what was more important, Moral or Character? After a month of not seeing how his program was doing at KIPP Middle school, he returned to find out that
Young people in the 21st Century need to reevaluate their ethics; David McCullough is helping them understand that by explaining that they need to be honest with themselves and their reality. His scathing criticism of them and their culture, philosophies, and ideologies, is justified and insightful; teens in the United States allows special to become a meaningless term, prefers to win instead of achieving, and cares too much about superficial accomplishments instead of internal growth.
In the article Beautiful Brains by David Dobbs, evolutionary research conveys that during the adolescent and teenage years the brain encounters an astonishing amount of growth and transformation. Dobbs states that these developments contribute to many of the irresponsible decisions made by teens. In the past, the brain was thought to cease maturing around the age of ten, however, new investigations have found that between the ages of twelve and twenty five, the brain continues to develop, undergoing a considerable metamorphosis. During this metamorphosis, myelin insulates a greater number of neuron’s axons, increasing the speed in which messages are exchanged, dendrites branch out and become broader, accelerating the rate at which messages are received, and synaptic pruning occurs which causes the brain’s cortex to become slimmer and more adept. During teenage years, the brain is still learning to network as well as deal with day to day obstacles such as stress, exhaustion and problems. Dobbs explains that teens act the way they do because their brains are not done maturing.
In teenagers’ eyes, the world is so hypocritical. They have parents who are coercing them to go to the Ivy League, MIT, University of Chicago, Caltech, or Stanford, but parents only expect excellent results without knowing anything about their children. As a result, teenagers get so much stress. They sometimes want to run away to somewhere very far away from their home or commit suicide. In The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield views the world “phony.” However, influenced by some characters, he decides to view the world more brightly. The three most influential characters to Holden are Phoebe, Allie, and Mr. Antolini.
Innocence is the idea of being blameless and free from any wrongs because one devoid in making any decisions. However, at times those who are innocent cause frenzy and disruptions in a family. Alden Nowlan’s, The Fall of a City, portrays how Teddy, an eleven year old boy, full of imagination in his own little world is ridiculed by his aunt and uncle whom believe that he is up to something in the attic. Subsequently, it is accentuated that his imagination blinds him from realizing the reality that his imaginations are illusions. Throughout this short story, Nowlan demonstrates how naivety and innocence blinds one from realizing the truth by juxtaposing the two settings and emphasizing on the conflicts. Ultimately, innocence undermines an individual’s
Maturity is subjective. Maturity has no definition, since everyone views maturity in different ways. Some view maturity as putting other's dire needs before one’s minor needs. Some say maturity is a coming of age, where one finds one’s morals, or what one believe to be right and wrong. One of the most common definitions for maturity is the ability to adapt to the environment one is given. Sometimes, immaturity can be evident in adults. So, what is the thread which ties all of these ideas together?
According to Wilhelm Stekel, “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.” Although one could disagree with the quote through the argument that by dying nobly for a cause, the cause would gain attention from others and strengthen, I believe that by living for a cause, one possesses the ability to contribute far more in their lifetime and spread the ideas of the cause more effectively with continued efforts.
During the teenage period, the teenagers don’t have a fixed thought. They think differently than the oldest in age. It may be that teenagers in the same age have the same thoughts about life; it’s a difficult period of the lifetime. Peer and friends have an influence on the teenagers. Their peers teach and give bad advices to them. Some peers give pressure or influence other teenagers ,for instance, to drink and go to parties and do things that are not proper. It’s really similar to the “Speak” book and what Laurie Halse Anderson wants us to understand from her written book and how peer pressure affects teenagers. By reading this book, we can be more careful all the time and do not listen to peer.

The teenagers here are often confused about the identities they choose. This often leads to frustration. They may even give up looking for their identities for a while. This is the period where some of the teenagers end up indulging in immoral acts. According to ("6.3 Adolescence: Developing Independence and Identity | Introduction to Psychology," 2015), the independence of thinking in this period requires the adolescents to determine their sense of right and wrong on their own. They, therefore, face a lot of identity crisis in this period ("Adolescent Identity Development,"

Non-profit sector is very different from both the public and private sectors. It is a tax-exempt organization or social sector which is mainly formed for the purpose of education, religious, art, animal right or charitable (Hatten, 1997). Popular examples for the non-profit organization are World Wildlife Fund, Do Something, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Green Peace and Malaysia Red Crescent Society.
Originated from China, Confucianism, an ethical and philosophical system developed from the teachings of Chinese philosopher Confucius, is considered as one of the largest religions in Asia, concerned with the principles of good conduct, practical wisdom, and proper social relationship. Among Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, Vietnam and Singapore are profoundly affected by Confucian ideas in many aspects of life such as economy, policy, society and especially in education. Although both Vietnam and Singapore’s education have been influenced by Confucianism, there are similarities and differences between two countries in terms of origin, moral education
