This can be another cause of teen violence. Lashing out in response to what has been seen or experienced does not account for all instances of teen violence, however. According to the Center for Disease Control, teen violence can also be caused by frustration due to learning disorders, emotional distress, or Brumit attention deficits. In some cases teens do not know how to appropriately channel their frustrations and act out in anger as a form of release. The fact is there is no way to directly point to one cause in most cases of teen violence.

When her oppressors brought her to the hospital because she fainted and vomited blood, it was too late, for she had already passed away (Riaz). Unfortunately, Iram is not the only child who was killed during her enslavement in Pakistan. Azra’s landlord’s son raped her, even though she was only a seventeen-year-old girl (Riaz). However, since the family was afraid of Azra reporting them, her landlord’s family strangled her to death (Riaz).
