Teenagers lose a sense of power when they submit to their parents regulations of sex without questions. Some teenagers find it difficult to communicate openly about sex to their parents than others due to embarrassment. American teenagers struggle more with being open to the discussion of sex with parents opposed to teenagers in the Netherlands. These struggles are due to lack of home sex education causing an uncomfortableness of the subject when discussed with parents.
The tutor was able to help with Donny’s behavior, however, not his grades. His grades then plummeted back down to almost failing grades. Later in April, Donny got expelled from his school after the principal found beer and cigarettes in his locker. Furthermore, in June, Donny ran away from home. Therefore, the person who would be most to blame for Donny’s failures would be Daisy because she was worried about Donny’s problems too much and never listened to Donny.
The difference between the youth culture of the United States during the 1950’s and present day is that the youth will always clash ideas with their parents, but the subject to which they disagree will always be changing throughout time. The youth culture of the United States has changed in many ways as to what type of things that parents and children have different viewpoints about. Currently, both cultures do disagree on things from their parents, which is a similarity. For example, the youth culture of 1950 came around with rock’n’roll music, which was noise pollution to their parents, but harmony to the youth. The youth, for one of the first times, showed a great separation gap between parents and children.
Experimentation or curiosity often is a cause of an unexpected pregnancy. “Many parents have busy lives that prevent them from providing the guidance and support that their young teenagers need to make good decisions on issues such as sex, according to the website Parent Dish.” (R.Y Langham).

There are many causes to teen pregnancy such as the absence of parents, peer pressure, and glamorization of pregnancy. Becoming a young adult already has its share of personal issues, but having absent parents can result in loss of knowledge or wisdom.
It was because you do not feel like you fit in and that is what teenagers desire most. People used to ask me why I wanted to leave homeschooling in the first place. My answer lacked the drama that they were so eager to hear. I know that they were waiting for me to say that I wanted to be more social or that I needed more friends, but in reality I wanted to create more opportunities for myself. Opportunities that, if I had chosen to stay home schooled, I probably would have never been provided with.
“At first, I was caught up by the actual topic in the news but after hearing the way the spoke to the reporter, my interest suddenly changed direction. Instead of sharing my opinion about pools and swimming venues, I decided to just mull over at how our society nowadays display such a lack of respect for other people.” The disrespect the youth today are showing all starts at home. Parents are not caring what trouble their kids get into and that causes problems. When people tolerate disrespectful behavior, it eventually leads to crime and
Babies Born Addicted to Illegal Drugs Mothers who use illegal drugs while pregnant increase the risk of the baby being born having health issues. Babies who are born addicted to drugs usually suffer from neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Babies that are born to mothers addicted to drugs do not have the choice to be clean. Mothers need to think about their unborn child, instead of being selfish and only thinking of themselves and their next “high.” Addiction is a powerful disease that affects one in every ten people in the United States. However, if people look at it from an outsider point of view, it not only affects the addict, but the addict’s family and friends.
On top of that he had to kill to survive. Many American teenagers complain that they hate their life because their parents took their phones away for the weekend and/or their closet does not have enough clothing in it. Beah’s childhood makes our childhoods seem like paradise. It is important for American teens to read this novel because then they can understand how grateful they should be for the things they have. Beah had to undergo war, and that had many negative effects which some privileged teens would say only happens in books.
We all grow close in friendship in senior year, one of the twin had died the early year of 2015. Prior to that tragic year, the kid would shoot heroin before and after school.

Many kids drink very heavily at this time and I believe it is because they feel as though they are freed from their parents.
