Social dating sites for teenagers
Magazines continue to portray the airbrushed goddesses young girls believe they should look like and are filled with little more than beauty and sex advice forcing teenager girls to play dual roles in society.
Tv shows and movies tell them to be casual and carefree with their lives while still being responsible and taking care of everyone around them.
Unhealthy relationships can start early and last a lifetime.
Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name-calling, are a “normal” part of a relationship.
Magazines, movies, tv shows, social networking sites and many more sources of media have a daily influence on everyone that comes into contact with them and they maintain an especially great effect on young teenagers, struggling through a turbulent and confusing stage of life.
Such influences can present extraordinary psychological challenges and upsets in the life of a young teenager and if they aren’t balanced out by the presence of advice and open communication from a loving parent or caretaker they can often overwhelm what might have been an otherwise healthy, stable, and mature young adult.
Young boys suffer from a different plight but one that they are exposed to in a similar fashion.
Our culture is filled with endless outlets of expression, advertising, and persuasion, many of which are used without any thoughts as to the moral consequences they bear.
Ideas and information about serious topics such as sex, alcohol, violence, and so forth are watered down, joked about, and discussed nonchalantly online all the while giving teenagers false impressions about the gravity of the decisions they make and the effect those decisions have on their futures.
The world has changed and with it emerging technologies have shifted how our teenagers view themselves and those around them.
They take on the roles society pushes on them with uncertainty and fear while being egged on by friends who have already ventured down similar paths.
Many begin to experiment with drugs and alcohol, pursuing the glamorous life that is portrayed to them through so many outlets.
