Dressing children in adult clothing has been suggested as hurrying because it makes them look like adults so they feel they should act as adults and we lose sight of their innocence. Forcing children to participate in sports before their bodies are ready is also happening. Parents put too much pressure on children to win which takes the fun out of the already physically harmful game. The book goes on to talk about how different family lifestyles hurry children. Divorced and single parent families have a better chance of hurrying their children, while married families are able to set better examples.

Children can also easily relate to each other at Battle School. As children of similar experiences and way of thinking, they are more likely to understand each other. This will allow them to develop strong bonds of teamwork, which is of upmost importance when trying to strategize on the battlefield. Some people argue that Battle School should be discontinued because of the excessive use of bullying at the school, which can cause fatal injuries and in extreme cases, death, for many children. Bullying, however, is an important factor that forces many children to exceed their expectations because they “[have] no choice but to persevere and to succeed” (“Love Letter To My Bully”).
The documentary uses music and selective footage to represent teenagers in the dominant ideology of contemporary society. The student Sam reinforces this representation as he is seen in the documentary as a trouble maker and a bully to Dean. This is seen through the selection of footage and interviews. Sam is viewed as a bully as the footage only shows the bad behavior or when he is making rude comments. Another reason why the selective footage is important is the audience is positioned to see Sam’s weaknesses when he is sitting down doing maths with Mr Goddhard.
A very good example of this is his date Sally who is roughly around the same age as him and thinks things through and is aware of the consequences. The catcher in the Rye should not be banned.

In conclusion the representation of teenagers in the media is completely unfair and wrong. I believe that we should all give teenagers more support and less criticism, including the Daily Mail. Being a teenager is a very difficult process as your body dramatically changes and you are subject to over-whelming hormones.
Do Hard Things: Chapter One: We don’t think ‘average teenagers’ exist,” write the twins. Explain what ways you think popular culture misrepresents what the teen years are for? Think of one thing that would change if you and your friends believed—really believed—that low expectations were ripping you off? Answer: I think that older people hold teens to a higher standard than what they were held to when they were teens, most of them had to work and take more responsibility. Now I think that times are different and teens now don’t have to take much responsibility, but that does not mean we are not capable if the opportunity presents itself.
In recent times, people have resorted to cyber bullying as there is a potential for a wider range of victims to inflict pain and suffering on as compared to the old-fashioned schoolyard bullying. This is because when victims are abused verbally, the victim might not remember every word the bully has said, but in the case of emails and text, chatrooms and websites the targeted students can read what the bully has said over and over again. Moreover, written words seem more concrete and real compared to spoken words.

Shakespeare also argues that people who do not, except that others will gather the tragedy. Cooney MacBeth uses to prove his thesis; then Bob Ewell Lee uses the character to prove its case, and Tybalt Shakespeare to prove his point.
Brothers Are The Same The New World Dictionary defines courageous as “The state of quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger with self possession confidence, and resolution; bravery.” Just like kids standing up to their bully and telling them to stop after many years of pain.
