As it is the younger adults that rebel against their parents by taking drugs and consuming alcohol and it is the older generation that rebel against those in higher authority. This is proven through characters such as Johnny Byron, Dawn, Lee, Fawcett, Wesley, Professor, Davey, Phaedra and Tanya. Although there are characters such as Ginger that could be argued is used for comedic reasons to explore the rebellion of youth against age. This is proven through his character as he is showed to be one that in his cognitive process he is still young and relatable to the younger generation when in fact the audience witnesses that he is just making a fool of himself. Ginger is used for comedy as when he behaves as one of the youths he starts rapping as shown in act one “It’s the fair, it’s the Flintock fair.

To Whom It May Concern: Do you want your children and students getting an extra dosage of vulgar language, sexually rated scenarios, and issues that are awful enough to cause depression? In the book The Catcher in the Rye all of these issues are present. Everything from filthy language written on walls, to the purchase of a prostitute, all of this is present in this novel. This book is not helping solve the issues that teenagers are facing in these days. That is why it should be banned from schools across the country.
The enforcement of the 21 year old drinking age has implemented a culture of serious binge drinking, and has become a nation-wide epidemic amongst high school students, college-aged individuals, and full grown adults. The negative effects from the current drinking age are doing nothing but harm towards society as a whole, and it must be repealed
Dear Editor, I am writing to complain about the representation of teenagers in the media. Specifically I am referring to the documentary Educating Essex and reviews of the show that appeared in the Daily Mail and The Observer. The Daily Mail describes teenagers to be “ignorant”, “wild” and “scumbags”. This suggests that teenagers are a social menace, who are violent and threatening to others. In particular the word “ignorant” implies that teenagers are clueless and unintelligent.
Low self-esteem is one of the things that would affect you you start to not believe in yourself etc. Would you be happy to hit your own parents?

P makes you look hideous, imagine going to school or hanging out with your friends with brown rotten teeth.
Nobody wants to hear that their city is full of poverty, mishaps, illiteracy and, No hope. Especially the citizens of Detroit I believe my city takes things the hardest, but can still accept the fact that this is a crisis.

Now the education crisis in Detroit Public Schools has ruined us for an unimaginable long time. Just as the authors makes clear in his article.
Binging: Headed for Devastation? Alcoholism has been considered to be something of a mass epidemic and is inevitable because of the rigid grip it holds on Americans today, especially teenagers. While various teens experience the urge to binge drink because of circumstances, others feel the need simply for potential new friends or popularity. It is no contest when comparing high school drinkers to that of collegiate binge drinkers because with age and freedom comes rash decisions made only by those mentally weak and insecure. Binge drinking among college students is indeed a colossal crisis which in itself asks for serious attention on all aspects.
They often show hostile behavior towards the immigrants by looking down on them, calling them names, using stereotypes, etc. In an article entitled, The Human Face of Immigration, Mindi Rappaport’s eight grade class tells her that immigrants are taking jobs, bring crime, and belonging to gangs. This statement from her eighth grade class shows that little kids are being thought to exclude immigrants at an early age. Many people also believe that allowing the illegal immigrants to stay in America is causing taxpayers too much money. I believe that letting these people know that they are not welcome in your country of opportunity because of money problems is cruel.
