Reviving Ophelia Abusive relationships are not only reserved for married couples. There are plenty of teens caught up in these dangerous situations, and like older women, the teenage girls feel they are somehow responsible for the abuse they suffer at the hands of the men whom they love and who supposedly love them. This phenomenon is common among abused women. They make excuses for the beatings they take and their abusers insist it will never happen again. And yet it does the cycle of violence never end.
These images of celebrities drunkenly spilling out of nightclubs are every where and they’re making binge drinking look glamorous for teens. These celebrities get drunk and do drugs and this behavior is advertised throughout the media. This type of behavior influences teens widely and can be very harmful to teens as these celebrities behaviors rub off on teens. Teens may be lead to think that it’s normal to drink like this as their favorite celebrity does this and they’re beautiful and famous. This causes teens to turn to drinking as teens think this is cool and think this can help them fit in and be accepted by their peers.
One cause of hooking-up could be because of stress. College students are put through a lot of hard work in the years they are in school.

Divorce “ Teenagers in Trouble” Stress is basically defined as an applied force to strain a body; a mentally or emotionally upsetting condition occurring in response to adverse external influences and capable of affecting physical health. Teenagers now days have had a lot of stress because of a lot of different reasons.

Such stresses put teenagers in problems where they make life decisions that can be very risky. Many books were interesting regarding child stress but particularly “The Romance of Risk” by Dr. proton was very amazing.
Teenage years is probably one of the most challenging periods of life. It is a stage of identity versus confusion – knowing oneself compared to losing oneself. Belonging and being accepted in a group is very important and being "cool" as well. During these years of growing up, teenagers encounter their share of positive and negative experiences. Peer pressure, curiosity, and the availability of drugs are factors that some youthful and vulnerable teenagers have to deal with in their adolescent lives.
Graff asks, “Why was she out so late at night, provoking men into rage by being openly female?” People blame women for being out so late and night, and it seems like women want men to enjoy them. It is absurd that people would blame women on everything, even when it is not women’s fault. Another cause of rape culture is that men as a whole are stronger than women. In the past women do not have more power than men and now they aren’t physically stronger than them so they would be over powered by men. For example most of the men can force women not to move with their strength, so women cannot escape from men.
-How peer pressure starts: Many youngsters initially experiment with drugs or alcohol because of peer pressure that hovers over them. In fact, it is most of the times a friend who first offers drug or alcohol to the teens. A teen who has friends that drink is much more likely to be involved in drunk driving just because the peer group approves of the use of alcohol. Likewise, use of drugs or alcohol will also worsen if the teen is part of the group who condones using these substances. -DRUG USE TRENDS: The trend of drug use
Using cell phones for “Sexting” which is considered sending, receiving or forwarding naked photos is a common practice among teens. The consequences of these actions can be severe and have a lifelong effect on them. The teens don’t see the potential dangers that their actions may have when they exchange these types of photos. Sexuality is becoming increasingly more acceptable at a younger age and the accessibility to images that promote it is everywhere. Lithwick mentions several cases in which teens are being charged and tried with felonies for sending nude photos to boyfriends.
Cameron Williams 11 April 2011 4th Hour Ms. Mason Music Affect on Teens The negative effects that music can have on teens are that it encourages sexual activity, causes hearing loss, and encourages violence, but positive effect that music can have on teens is that it can help them concentrate, it can help them have a positive mind and can help them do better in school.
