It’s Me, Margaret would feel pretty life-changing to young girl growing up, unable to talk about the challenges of puberty and worries of getting your first period. (It’s odd to think how disputed this was in the 1980s, when it became a ‘banned book’). It’s incredible to discover a book where the main character is going through something you’re going through, something that you couldn’t talk to other people about. I only had teen magazines! It reminded me of all the things I used to worry about as a 11 to 14-year-old and how the worrying doesn’t stop, but the things you’re worrying about just change.
It uses what is called the Short Message Service, and is often called SMS for short. It is usually referred to as texting; it sometimes referred to as “txting,” using the shorthand common in text messaging as a way of dealing with short message limits and often bulky interfaces. Over the years, text messaging has become a widely used tool for both adults and teens. There have been a lot of contrasting opinions where it has become a primary source of conversation between our youth and teens. There are those who feel it is just as common as making a phone call and others who feel it has become detrimental to our education and learning.
She had her daughter at a young age and with no help from her father, she did it all by herself. Upon having a baby at a young age, she had to drop out of high school and become parent by herself. She is the only person I know, besides myself to be an amazing mother all by herself, while going back to school to receive her GED, by attending a community college for nursing and also graduating. I see my chosen theory in Shantay in a variety of ways. Like Horney, she also emphasized the importance of parent-child relationships.
It characterizes teens in high school that are sexually active and having babies. On the show these teens are portrayed as sex craving kids that can’t wait until marriage to have sex. Some of the young girls become pregnant at the tender age of 14. Most times contraceptives were not talked about or even used in the script. I found it to be very humorous that the parents of the teens were more excited about the baby.
Many people who get tattoos do it for a personal reason, so that they can be forever reminded of the reason that they got the tattoo. Tattoos, whether meant for a reaction, for art, or for a meaning, should not be judged simply by appearance, but rather viewed as another way to see an individual's way of being. Numerous adolescents feel as though they can’t fit into society these years, that they have to be a certain; height, color, size in order to be classified as normal. Andres mentions that adolescents get tattoos because they “offer a concrete… solution for many of the identity crisis and conflicts”(pg143). Tattoos bring out individuality in a person; it shows who they are or who they want to be.
With the danger explained in detail to teenagers and also teaching how to stand up to peer pressure, this will provide extra assurance and confidence within the teenagers to stand up for their belief in not participating in drugs.

High school is a transitional period of finding out who you are as an individual. It is a learning period for most teenagers who are not totally sure of their identity, and capabilities. They have visions and dreams of what they think the world should be, but are not aware of how daunting the task. It is a time when you are responsible enough to drive, but not constitutional old enough to vote. The advice I would give to someone starting high school is to be focused on their students, avoid peer pressure, and participate in extracurricular activities.
#25 David G. Moody English 1 10-25-13 TEXTING AND ITS EFFECTS ON TEENS (Ethos) When texting first came out it wasn’t very popular, but now it seems that we can’t go a day without sending text messages.

There is always that same depiction of that good girl, but do the guys deserve it? Not at all, and the ones that deserve it go for less-than-perfect girls. Good guys go for bad girls, and they leave the almost-perfect girls aside. We all know it, we all see it, why deny it?

Even if it is meant in jest, violating this boundary can be hurtful (Lampert, L. (2011, April 30). First set healthy boundaries. Here are some way’s to set healthy boundaries talk, listen, and think. Talk about it to the person they may not even know what they are doing, by talking to the person you may be able to work something out if they are willing to work on it to. Listen to yourself as much as the other person for example your girlfriend does not like you kissing her ear and she asks you please to never do it.
