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. Peers had several ways that they pressure or influence Melinda Sordino’s life; they were talking to her all time and give her bad advice (Halse).
So they continously do the activity until such time that they realize that it has become an addiction without realizing that it is detrimental in their health.

To explore more on this issue, a studys conducted in Harvard School of Public Healthshows that students who are engaged in alcohol drinking activities tend to be are displaying negative behaviors and therefore reveiving sanctions by the authorities (Wechsler et al.
Furthermore, the psychodynamic theory proposed that "criminals are frustrated and aggravated" due to negative events in their childhood which affect the individual 's unconscious. Osibin may have suffered from oppositional defiant disorder because she can easily have lost her temper and had an argument with her mother before deciding to shoot her in the head. Both the social learning theory and the psychodynamic theory emphasized that Alicia Osibin could have been exposed to early childhood aggression that resulted in an oppositional defiant
Peer pressure influence teenagers to drink because many teens feel like they won 't fit in with their friends if they don 't do it .I think that Laurie Halse Anderson, the author of “Speak” , is saying that something bad can happen if you get peer pressured into do something bad. In the book, Melinda Sordino is influenced by peer pressure to drink alcohol because one of her friends is telling her to drink at a party . (Halse). I experienced peer pressure one time to drink, but I didn’t want to because something bad would happen. We both have in common that we are getting pressured to do something that’s bad, however, we responded differently since she gave nt into pressure, but I didn’t (Halse).
Teens have a difficult enough time making decisions and organizing their lives, but adding alcohol to the mix will only make matters worse; their bodies are still developing, and they are still learning to be adults. Teens already struggle deciding what clubs to join, what colleges to apply for, what college to attend, what to major in, and much more. Teens should not be allowed to legally drink because alcohol consumption can affect their health and
But even though she seemed to be rude to everyone I don´t think she was, I think she actually was caring deep down. She cared a lot about her step siblings and got concerned when they were leaving bill without them, she knew that he was abusive and could likely hurt them. She asked her mum why they couldn´t come with
You have just said the new law forbids it. Also, But think of the danger! Think what Creon will do!” She was plainly and obviously a coward and that is what led to her disgrace. Fortunately at the middle(kind of at the end) of the script she was brave and decided to get punished with Antigone even if she didn’t do anything. For example when she said: “Yes, if she will let me say so.
The story doesn’t tell much of Terri’s past, but i’m going to assume that my colleague’s information is partially correct. So she grew up with issues at the home and her mental state was affected by it. But even after she got out of her physically abusive relationship she found herself in yet another one, but this partner is verbally abusing her. Mel constantly belittles her and tells to “‘just shut up for once in you life, will you do me a favor and do that for a minute?’”(510). This shows how her mind subconsciously chooses the more aggressive men, possibly resembling her
Because of Dee’s new persona, Wangero, was not accepted by her family, this caused her to become angered and defensive. Mama and Maggie do not like this new Wangero person. Since Dee family is not reacting well to the new her, this could be bad news for her mental health. Oswalt says that the way your parents and family react to the new you can affect the outcome of an identity crisis. Usually, if the parents become angered or react negatively to the final result of the crisis them it will output a worse result than if they would have been more calm and supportive (Oswalt).
There is differently a connection between the unconscious and conscious and it affects the way we live our lives and how we treat people. Searle gives this example in his book “an adolescent’s rebellion against school authorities might be accounted for in Freudian terms by his unconscious hatred of his father (symbolically represented as the school authorities)”. The same idea applies to us have you ever meet someone and just could not stand them from the beginning? The person had done nothing to you but whenever they walked into the room you would roll your eyes. Well, unconsciously you could be transferring your feelings of someone else on to this person.
I believe that Alison can physically say out loud that she is a suspect and take full responsibility for things she has done. However, I did not think that she believed those things in her heart and mind. She sometimes spokes as if she is the victim, like everyone has done her wrong. For example, with her situation with her classmate, Tori, she just always assumed Tori was after her. Alison always accused Tori for doing things to her because she had made herself believe that Tori hated her.
