Edward’s actions positioned the audience to worry about him because of how easy Edward was manipulated by others to be accepted in a community. The balance of themes that was created throughout Edward Scissorhands by Tim Burton was used to make the film more relatable to teenagers. This then exemplified how teenagers react to certain situations during this period of life. Edward experienced many of these different circumstances.

These negative impacts can interfere with the healthy growth of teenagers. The only concern of a teenager should be educating their self, to start to make sense about the world and the country they live in. This kind of shows is coming in between the education of teens.

Although Romeo and Juliet made poor decisions, their decisions were normal because of the immaturity of their brains. Teenagers analyze the surrounding environment from a flawed perspective compared to adults. Molly Edmonds compares teenage brains to “entertainment centers that haven’t been fully hooked up” (Edmonds). Human brains take several decades to mature
This has meant that language variation has been “looked into in relation to categories and distinctions that have relevance for particular youth cultures” (Androutsopoulos & Georgakopoulou 2003:5). Such an approach has shown how language is used by youth to display their lifestyles and also to draw on symbolic systems, such as clothing brands, body posture and mode of walk to show belonging. Before unpacking communities of practice, I discuss the use of speech communities in understanding youth practices. A speech community is defined as a group of speakers who share norms and rules for the same language (Eckert and McConnell-Ginet 2003). Gumperz (1972a:16) is of the view that members of the same speech community need not all speak the same language nor use the same linguistic forms on similar occasions.

Households in"Middle Class" generally don 't insist their children to work, however the children choose to work on their own instead. These teenagers can learn some life disciplines that would improve their decisions later in life, plus learn about real-life world problems and understand the value of how important and how hard it is to make money. These experiences and exposure will definitely think through their decisions if it 's really worth to buy something. Youngsters that are born into families in the lower class doesn 't have many options. They grow up way too quick and the responsibilities just keeps piling up.
An example used in the book was “Teenage mind is like an empty house that needs furnishing, walls and a roof”. As adolescents, they will need time to figure out who they really are as people. They need to figure out their interests and hobbies therefore they will stick with their peers rather than their elders. My social example is that teens usually have common interests with their peers which make them connect better with each other than they would with
A teen’s identity is influenced by many things. Family, friends, social media, they all play a role in making you who you are. Even something as simple as a selfie can affect you. You might find yourself wondering, how? We’ll talk about that later.
