Open versus Closed Adoption As a nursing student, I have had the opportunity to speak with high school students about the issues of teen pregnancy and parenting. One student in particular confided that she was having trouble deciding whether she should put her unborn baby up for adoption. This conversation prompted me to investigate the legal and ethical issues facing parents who decide to give their child up for adoption.

Leah Hardy Kidder English 9 Honors 20 March 2013 A question commonly asked by frustrated parents to their teenagers: why don’t you just grow up and start acting like an adult? Although it is a rhetorical question, there is an answer. Research has shown that the human brain does not reach full development until people are in their 20s. Teenage brains are strikingly unlike adults’, explaining their often rash, immature behavior exemplified in Mary E. Pearson’s novel The Adoration of Jenna Fox and William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. In The Adoration of Jenna Fox, 17 year old Jenna Fox struggles to recover from an 18 month-long coma that left her with complete amnesia.
Katniss Fears Often characters have a lot of fears. In the novel Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, we meet Katniss Everdeen who lives in District 13 in the country of Panem. Katniss wants to overthrow the capitol, but first she has to become the Mockingjay and put her feelings of anger and distrust aside in order to overthrow the Capitol.

When we first meet Katniss she had become the head of the house.

If schools can’t give kids Aspirin or Motrin without informing the parents; then why should they be able to administer birth control without the parents
I became a single-parent at the age of 17, being a young and wild teenager trying to keep up with my friends I got caught up. I had several choices but being raised by my grandmother, I knew abortion was not even an answer for me. I once thought about adoption but was determine to right my wrongs by being a woman raising a child that did not ask to be here. The sociological imagination (also called the sociological perspective) helps us to see how the larger social forces influence our personal lives (Hensley, 2011 Page 4).
