People often allow their perceptions to be influenced by a self-serving bias that can jade the depth of reality.

With a rapidly changing body and brain, adolescents seek out the independence they crave, while still not having the capacity or capability to truly be on their own. This can cause a great deal of imbalance within the parent-child relationship (Steinburg, 2008, p. 43). For some parents, adolescence is the first time they have seen any indication that their child is no longer that perfect, sweet baby that they once held in their arms. This often causes confusion, and is concerning to them. It is usually at this time that I will get a phone call from a parent asking for my help in dealing with their “out of control” teenager, and Tracy Freeland is no different.
As I grew older, I began to question why my mother would give such bizarre advice. I did not think there was anything wrong with my Persian boyfriend, but my mother thought otherwise. It was from then on that I realized; when someone is prejudice against your race or culture, it can be extremely difficult to change his or her negative opinion about you. When Pat Sumi is retelling her childhood, she tells Ryan Yokota, “It was not a negative stereotype, but it was a stereotype nonetheless and it made me aware at a very early age how your looks and your background could be twisted by people who wanted to make assumptions” (Interview with Pat Sumi, Yokota p.17). In the past, I have never really considered stereotypes as being either positive or negative, it was always just negative to me.
All throughout the movie Ghost World directed by Terry Zwigoff, the reoccurring theme was nonconformity and the transition from adolescence to adulthood. The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be difficult, which caused Enid to not want to conform to societies expectations, but to be an individual who doesn’t care what other people think. On the other hand, her best friend Rebecca didn’t have a very hard time transitioning from childhood to being an adult. During the transition out of highschool to living on your own it can seem very overwhelming for young people and sometimes they take a little longer to find their path to success then other people. In the movie when Enid and Rebecca had an important meeting to go to, to see about
No longer a self-assured sexual being, her response—that she is buying something for her mother,reveals that she has not yet quite reached adulthood. The combination of her brazenness and vulnerability ultimately spurs Sammy to shun the rules that bind him. ‘’You never know for sure how girls’ minds work (do you really think it’s a mind in there or just a little buzz like a bee in a glass jar? ).’’ Sammy speculates on the mental processes of girls early in the story. he assumes that if he cannot understand the workings of a girl’s mind, it is because there is no mind there to understand.
More and more we have been hearing the wishful voices of just such perpetual adolescents, the voices of women scarred by resentment not of their class position as women but at the failure of their childhood expectations and misapprehensions. "Nobody ever so much as mentioned" to Susan Edmiston "that when you say 'I do,' what you are doing is not, as you thought, vowing your eternal love, but rather subscribing to a whole system of right, obligations and responsibilities that may well be anathema to your most cherished beliefs." To Ellen Peck "the birth of children too often means the dissolution of romance, the loss of freedom, the abandonment of ideals to economics." A young woman described on the cover of a recent issue of New York magazine as "the Suburban Housewife Who Bought the Promises of Women's Lib and Came to the City to Live Them" tells us what promises she bought: "The chance to respond to the bright lights and civilization of the Big Apple, yes. The chance to compete, yes.
Take a guess which one they chose, home of course. These teenaged girls were so scared of the trouble they might get into that they didn’t make an effort to help their friend and possibly save her life. I know what you’re thinking though; if Anna had followed the law and not taken drugs then she wouldn’t have died. But reality is, teenagers experiment, they make mistakes but they are not
