There are several theories as to why teens act out in violence, which results in many rules and regulations at schools and other places that there were not before, but can be prevented by using several different avenues including the family, schools, and the community.
Teen Violence Teen violence is an increasing thing in our world. There are many reasons why this happens; for example to prove how tough you are, gangs, living in a bad area, race, the media, and students retaliating because of bullying. Each reason may play a different role in a teen’s life. Teen violence will always be a part of regular teen life because of the people we have to look up to and the situations we put ourselves in. I went to school in Brooklyn at Automotive High School.

Bullying is a plague that creeps up on schools and spreads through rumors, causing innocent students to suffer. This is serious because, bullying is harmful towards anyone, especially to those in school. It could distract students from their studies and create a low self-esteem that can ruin future careers. Now there are already laws towards bullying such as discrimination, assault, and harassment, but those laws need to be enforced. However they are not, because in most cases of bullying it is usually one person’s word against the others.
