Most of the people don’t like teenagers who have bad habits such as smoking, involve fights, tease other people and rude, but as Mary Lou Kownacki says “There isn’t anyone you couldn’t love once you’ve heard their story. ” Some of the teenagers have these bad habits just because of their interests or peer pressure, but some of them lost their brother or had been in jail; basically they might have real problems; they have stories. Even though Dallas Winston in The Outsiders and Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye lived in different time periods and suffered from different problems, their reactions to their traumas were similar: they both reacted to their traumas with violence, conflict with others and rebelliousness.

A common issue in today’s society is the increasing number of young people who are being sentenced for joint enterprise. There are many arguments for and against this law due to many not wanting innocent people locked up for a crime they witnessed, or being sentenced for observing dangerous and illegal actions which isn’t actually their fault. I believe joint enterprise should no longer be used. The reason for this is because I personally think only the one who commits the crime should hold a punishment. I do believe those who took part deserve to be punished too, just not as severely.

This in return makes them vulnerable to attacks and rapes on account of there being no witnesses.
Violent video games have been blamed for everything from bullying to school shootings. Critics of these video games believe they cause people to commit violent acts in real life. These critics, mainly comprised of parents and other responsible adults, don’t agree with what the video games portray. Others say the video games cause less violence and are an outlet for anger and stress. Although violent video games have violent actions in them, teenagers should be able to play violent video games because there isn’t enough evidence to prove they make teens more aggressive, it could prevent violence, and violent video games are a fun and relaxing way to relieve stress and anger.
