Teenagers: it becomes increasingly frightening to me how much teenagers are asked to handle. They are asked to deal with smoking, drugs, drinking, sex, relationships, career choices, getting good grades, keeping families together...the list goes on and on. I guess my point is that with my most recent studies I have discovered or been reminded how immature the teenage brain is and how much they still need to develop. In essence they are not mentally prepared to deal with this sort of pressue instead they find out about their parent's divorce, are treated like pawns to gain power over the other spouse, verbally abused. Parent's are destroying their teenagers lives, teens don't need any help doing that. They need help, just not that kind.
