Years later when I was drug free, I looked back on my life and saw all the damage my addiction caused my friends and family and mainly my future. I’m writing this essay to encourage youth to not make the same mistakes I did and to educate others who can help addicts recover.

“Between 2001 and 2009, the number of kids under 19 visiting emergency rooms for concussions each year increased by 62 percent.” (Source #1,pg.1) More evidence states that, “...Pee Wee and Pop Warner players sustain from 240 to 585 head hits per season between ages 9 and 12, a critical period of brain development.”(Source #2,pg.4) This supports the claim that kids should not be able to play football because it is very dangerous and risky. The effects of playing football can cause life long injuries like brain damage and concussions. Due to this, youths should not be able to play football.
Title: Meaning of Self-harm in Adolescent girls Basic Introduction: Topic: Self harm refers to hurting oneself to relieve emotional pain or distress. The most common forms of this behaviour are cutting and burning. The least common forms of self-harm include pulling out bodily hairs, punching walls, and ingesting toxic substances or sharp objects. Many adolescents today are struggling to cope with extreme levels of stress in school, in their families and in peer relationships. Some of these youths are over scheduled and being hurried through their adolescent years by parents and peers alike.
How is it that modern American teenagers across the nation still fear for their safety of coming to school every day? Why has the teenage suicide rate skyrocketed, hitting an all-time high in the past decade? Although the situation is very complicated, the truth of the matter derives from the increased rate of children living with depression due to social pressures at home or school. Just like Esther and Holden, from The Catcher and the Rye and The Bell Jar, both characters portray exemplars of teenagers growing up with depression and demonstrate the impact it has on their lives. Even though these books have existed for over a half-century, the moral messages from both novels still relate to the concept of the modern American teen years later.
Human trafficking is a pervasive problem that effects millions of people worldwide each year. In the process victims unfortunately experienced the Grooming practice. The Grooming practice is a set of manipulation techniques used by many abusers in order to keep their victims psychologically captive. Interestingly, most survivors describe being groomed at first as a pleasant experience filled with flattery, gifts, and attention in some cases, but at on point the abuser begins the isolation, demanding, and physical abuse process. That is why most people undergoing the Grooming process in the beginning stages fail to recognize the intentions of their abusers until it 's to late.
According to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, another person endures sexual assault every 98 seconds. This information may have been shocking ten years ago, but for many, this news is a basic fact of life. Sexual assault cases have continued to become more and more common as time goes on. What is causing this surge in unwanted physical contact? The cause of sexual assault is one hundred percent of the time, the assaulter’s fault.
Underage Tattooing Underage tattooing is an increasing problem all over the world. As well as it being a luxury for teenagers, it is also a shared commonality that includes almost 75% of the world population, or simply just friends and family. Yet, as adults who have been through the - no longer - popular trend of tattoos in the early nineties, teenagers are bringing back the huge craze along with its dangers and consequences. We need to know that fashions from the past could possibly be in the past because of horrible outcomes in the end. Illegally, teenagers between the ages of 13-16 are returning home from a holiday or shopping spree with an unnecessary tattoo, simply because less experienced shops or holiday resorts don’t request proof
Introduction Recent research has shown that memory is not a passive system of automatic recording of all experiences, but a flexible function whose storage capacity is limited. Studies of the American cognitive psychologist Elisabeth Loftus in the 1990s, has shown that memories are sensitive to beliefs, expectations and suggestion, and that people can ‘‘remember” information they have not experienced, which is called false memories (Loftus & Ketcham, 2012). For more than 20 years, most of the research has focused on their dramatic consequences, particularly in the context of recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse in therapy, which have destroyed many victims and their families (Brédart, 2012). However, positive consequences of false memories
Depression and anxiety is caused by someone with an aggressive behaviour which makes the individual depressed and likely to be lonely. There have been countless reports over the past few years of students committing suicide because of being bullied. Another unfortunate consequence of this is that bullying is cyclical. People who have been bullied can attempt to gain power and get self-esteem back. The impact of frequent bullying often accompanies these victims into adulthood; they are at greater risk of suffering from depression and other mental health problems, including schizophrenia.
