Teenagers who resort to peer pressure will conform to the opinions of their peers as they value what their peers think of them more. For example, a teenage girl wants to join the math club but is hesitant to do so as she is afraid of what her peers may think of her, a math geek or a nerd. Deciding to give up on her interests, she has given in to peer pressure. From this, the true interests and hobbies of
Many parents think that kids will think that the topics that rappers rap about will be cool, like selling drugs, having sex, etc. But teens know the difference between right and wrong. In fact, studies show that kids learn the difference between right and wrong at a very young age, at around 19 months old.

While the consensus may argue that the hookup culture is only a problem “depending on the person,” Wade has undeniably proven that it is indeed a problem with students more often than not. For the most part, teens don’t recognize the overall issues that the hookup culture endorses. This is important to recognize what the hookup culture is believed to be compared to what it actually is.

Drugs can affect the user’s mindset and thought process which can lead to unintentional actions. In the article, “Loneliness and Suicidal Ideation in Drug-Using College Students,” states that “prevalence rates for collegiate drug use from the Monitoring the Future study suggest that 37% of college students have used a drug besides alcohol.” It also found that “college students who use drugs are at risk for a number of negative outcomes” (Lamis 630).

By doing so, Brooks shows readers that peer pressure can be very dangerous to kids, especially teenagers. Another peice of evidence is “We/ Sing sin.” (Brooks 5-6) Brooks once again shows her audience that teenagers are often pressured to do something wrong to seem cool or impress their friends. In this instance Brooks uses “sing sin” to refer to bad language, or behavior. In the final line of the poem Brooks says “Die soon.”
In youth generations, teens are more sensitive to things, since they are learning who they are. Family plays a big role in a person’s life; if a person’s upbringing was negative, they’ll most likely have this negative view of the world, though it’s not true for everyone. Youth culture is just as important for young people since this culture is where they learn how to be and how to feel. Like in today’s youth culture, it all revolves around what is trending on the internet and who’s doing what. Lastly, society, which is many times perceived as negative by young people; thanks to songs and media, sometimes they don’t feel like they fit in with the standards that are set by
