(Gangs) A deviant subculture is defined as a subculture, which has values and norms that differ substantially from the majority of people in society. When a neighborhood or community favors illegal activities, a criminal subculture is likely to develop such as gangs. Walter Miller states that deviant subcultures don’t arise from the inability of a community to achieve success, but because of a lower-class subculture whose values and norms are different from the rest of society. Subcultures can be a good thing, because they can provide a sense of belonging, interaction with people who have similar interests, and gives members the freedom to express individuality. Subcultures, though, may also be a bad thing by putting people against each other,
In 1960, the first birth control pill was put on the market. This was the first time a woman’s reproductive health was in her own control. Ever since the 1900’s women have been fighting for the right to their own reproductive rights (“The Fight for Reproductive Rights”). With the upcoming presidential election the right to obtain birth control and other contraceptives for women could be jeopardized, and taken out of the control of the woman. Thus, the history of birth control, the statistics of how it affects today’s society, why women should have the ability to obtain it easily, and how if outlawed it would not only hurt women, but also the economy are all important topics in the women’s rights movement and very relevant in modern day society.
The famous line from the classic 2000’s film Mean Girls, “Don 't have sex, because you will get pregnant and die!” mirrors the current state of sex education in America. Right now, only 24 US states mandate sex education, and the majority are abstinence only, as opposed to a comprehensive program. There are critical differences between comprehensive and abstinence-only sex education. Comprehensive sex ed provides age appropriate information about abstinence, contraceptives, reproductive choice, various sexualities, relationships and puberty. All is information is to be scientifically based and medically accurate. Meanwhile, abstinence only sex ed solely stresses the idea that sexual abstinence is the only way to completely avoid unwanted pregnancy

Summary: I have explained in this presentation the importance of sex education in reducing the rates of unwanted pregnancies among the adolescents. Secondly, sex education has been argued to contribute significantly to the reduction of the spread of HIV and AIDS among the adolescents.

Adolescence is the years between the beginning of puberty and onset of adulthood. These are the years where most people develop a strong and stable identity. It is the period where children start to become conscious of their identity and its possible immediate consequences or future repercussions. Relationships between parents and the adolescents often decrease, and they start to prefer to spend more time with their peers.
This study depicts pro-social behavior of the adolescents in psychological aspect. In 1990’s the adolescent’s positive development has gained greater attention in developmental literature. The concept of pro social involvement can help positive development among adolescents. The bystander effect plays as a moderating agent in displaying pro-social behavior.

Currently, in this globalisation media social complements human life especially teenagers. Media social are the website and applications that enable a person to share information and communicate with other. It gained worldwide popularity among youth. Despite media social have a good thing, it still have negative effect that lead to teenagers moral collapse. One of the reasons Teens tend to moral collapse because some people spread the prank video. As an example of someone who is running or walking there a man came to her water splash. So I strongly agree that social media is cause of the moral collapse among teenagers because of communication without limit, disseminated information does not have the legitimacy and making social websites as their priority.

Teenage pregnancy is the pregnancy of a young woman, usually between the age of 13 and 19 years. The rate of teenage pregnancy is among the highest in the world. Teenage pregnancy is a major problem in South African rural areas and townships that may impact the future of a young woman. Children as young as 12 years fall pregnant due to social problems in townships.

Drug abuse is one of the top issues defying the country today particularly among the teenagers. Occurrences of drug and alcohol abuse and related anti-social behavior have massively expanded lately. This has become a matter of concern to the government, parents and teachers. Teens regularly try different things with an assortment of activities and substances. Unfortunately, this experimentation can prompt substance misuse and addiction. Measurements demonstrate that drug abuse is a developing issue among teenagers.
