One of the most common teenage stereotypes would have to be teenage rebellion. Supposedly, teens can’t seem to get along with their parents or any adults for that matter. But who hasn’t gone through that phase when you just couldn’t wait for your father’s stories of him fighting the ‘Commies’ during dinner time to be over. Teens tend to rebel against adults due to the large age and interest gap between them. If both sides worked harder on compromising, there wouldn’t be any rebellion.
Teenage pregnancy is a constant worry due to teens becoming sexually active at such tender ages. Teenage years is the time that they tend to realize that their bodies is their temple and they would do what they please with it and again going back to their rebellion stage, the more their parents protest, the more curious they get on the subject of sex. But many don’t seem to realize that some teens can get pressured by their peers into having sex. Aside from the pressure, parents should know that even though they’re not willing the accept the fact that their children are possibly sexually active, they should always provide education on birth control and provide the actual protection for them because even though they are interest in using protection, they might be uncomfortable to purchase those kind of items themselves.
All teens do drugs…not quite. Although you may seem to think that most teens are into them, that doesn’t go for all of them. Youth on drugs is another case of peer pressure. “It’s hard to say no” is a common excuse and we have to agree that it is hard to do so sometimes in any situation. It’s like telling your mother she’s beautiful in a leopard print leotard. Anyways, kids doing drugs can be prevented as long as the education is there within reach and support is by their side.
