This story has showed us that we should express what we are feeling and never keep something tragic bottled up inside you for too long. Sometimes one may be surprised to hear that there are others that are experiencing the same feelings or they may see others come forward to help them get through this rough time. There are times that people, possibly friends, acquaintances or just a schoolmate may end up surprising you by actually being a decent person and being someone who cares. No matter which direction one takes, I feel that the main theme of this story was to pass on a valuable lesson to teenagers that they need to confide in someone about what their inner feleings are. A main example from the book is that Melinda kept this huge secret held inside.
Teens are sometimes more comfortable speaking with someone other than their parents. By informing him to this fact it could help him ease the feeling about speaking with me. If Adam does not understand why his parents have brought him to speak to me, I would clarify for him that his change in behavior including grades, change of friends and lack of respect for the rules are a big concern for his parents and they are just very worried something is going on that he is not comfortable speaking with them about. I would overlook the crying at first because mention of it may put him in a defensive mode. A couple relaxing non-defensive questions I would ask are what subjects in school he’s taking and what is his favorite subject.

Teens are on the news for gang related street brawls and taking guns to school because they are being harassed but when they do positive things, it doesn’t get as much recognition. A troubled teen only wants the attention they are not receiving at home. So if being negative and doing negative thing gets attention, that’s what they are going to do. The question, “how can we help prevent the crime rate within our neighborhood?” is often asked. I believe we should try to become more involved and active within our community.
More watchful parents and closely monitoring a child's friends will lessen or eliminate the ease of accessibility to not only marijuana, but other drugs as well. As a society, we have failed our youth in many areas of life. Youth need positive role models that are concerned about protecting them from harm and leading them in the right direction to go on a lead productive, drug-free lives despite any changes made to the laws. Being that age restrictions are put on everything else, there should be legal age restrictions for people who can legally purchase marijuana. People who can legally purchase marijuana should not be allowed to be around anyone under the age of 21 while the are under the influence or have marijuana in their possession.
So I have to persuade teenagers by starting with a story and I want them know have knowledge about social media. And they will know when to use their time to socialize, know how to keep them self-safe from bullying and if they are the bullying, they will stop bullying others. For parents, they always think that social media is a bad thing but after having knowledge about it, they will stop thinking negative thoughts and teach their kids about things that are positive and negative and they will even have fun time doing social media with their family. And for the church leader they are pretty much the same as parents because they care about teenagers. After learning the good things about socializing, they will
Drugs can be a normal practice within a sub culture where there is a rejection of the usual rules of the society. This can have a two fold effect. Firstly, it can lead to more punitive policies to counteract this but secondly, it implies that for a large number of people drug use is normal (Blackman, 2004). Recent researches have shown that recreational use of drugs is not necessarily a short term activity or experiment linked to peers, but is an activity that endures. Further more young adults start the habit without using during their adolescence and others who had stopped decided to restart when older (Parker et al., 1998) The normalization of drug use has huge implications for social work profession.
I am writing to ask you to help get a message across to teens and let them know that its ok to be different. Peer pressure comes from one person following another and trying to fit in to be cool. Some teen are more worried about what others think about them then what actually makes them happy. The biggest topic that I would like your
Try to convince your children <br>that smoking is not cool. Talk to your kids at a young age about the <br>dangers of smoking. Identify family members who smoke and ask them to <br>stop (Thomas). Children are the most valuable commodity we are given <br>in life. Let's try to educate them while they're young to be <br>independent thinkers and to not be swayed by the tobacco companies who <br>are trying to take advantage of their mind and body.
We have to act fast and get these laws in place so that our children will not ruin their lives becoming sex offenders. Parents need to educate, and discuss sexting with their children and pay attention to what is going on. Parents need to pay attention to what their children are doing on their cell phones. While the internet has parental controls on which websites the children may go to, cell phones do not have that ability. Do not feel like it is an invasion of privacy to look at your kid’s text messages.
