The Danger of Texting While Driving
Teens and Alcohol
Teens. As they grow older they grow tired of doing the same thing over and over. Alcohol is becoming the most available, popular thing to do. From parties and over-consumption to teens getting into cars and trying to drive intoxicated. It is too easy now for a teen to get their hands on alcohol. There is no REAL way to stop it, but there is a way to control it. Regardless of the law teens are going to drink, some parents have accepted that, they allow the parties to happen but under certain conditions. All parents who allow it usually take up the keys of every teen driver at the party. Responsible parents go as far as contacting the parents of every teen at the party and inform them of what they are doing. Now and days it's up to the parents to check-in and be aware of what their children are doing.
Children and teens have always bullied each other and always will, but they're now taking it as far as the internet. Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook have teens and children logging in everyday, making it the new thing. With these social media sites comes a new way to bully. Teens can post or say something to anyone for however many or however little people they want to see it. Recently bullies have taken their hateful words to these websites and have publicly attacked certain students. Teen suicides have been connected to the bullies who use Twitter and Facebook. It isn't monitored by any parents or teachers, so many people see it, yet no one speaks up. Why? The answer is that teens are afraid that if they try to stand up for those who get bullied they will find themselves in the same spot. The sad part is its true, more and more kid’s everyday come home depressed only to find that somebody has posted some horrible about them, and sometimes it's too much to handle.
