Life As A Teenager

All over the world, teens deal with substance abuse, neglect, and abuse, for me I dealt with inferiority complex.  With today's society I noticed that Teen relationships where only based upon Sex and Rep. Boys would brag about having the baddest chick that rocks the latest styles and this type of label made me feel less-confidence before. 

I wasn't insecure when it came to looks and clothes I was more concerned about finding a friend who cares about my mindset and where I see myself going on Earth. The hardest part about being a teenager is finding out who we are. We know where we came from but not as a person. Some of us have fallen into society to where we live up to what we seen on T.V. and internet.  

Note this “To be yourself in a world that’s constantly trying to make you something else is one of the greatest achievements”. It's not every day you meet a Teenager who is comfortable in their own skin. We live in a world where Teens rather be followers than different. Girls look up to sex slaves and strippers while boys look up to rappers and drug dealers. These types of role models come from low self-esteem. For a female having low self-esteem, it leads to various danger zones as far as death and sex. 

Women who have a low self-esteem look for sex because they feel as if their personality will not get them a man so they use sex and drugs. Impressing a teen-age boy is like training a dog, you have to learn our do's and dont's and how to keep a guy interested not only in your looks but your mind personality which personally is the hardest thing; being a teen we don't know what we need in life just yet so we go off our wants which leads us into disappointment later on. Research proves 9 out of 10 teens have watched porn. As parents it's not only important to search your child’s phone and social networks to avoid this but to train him/her in a godly way right from his/her childhood age.

Another great issue is SLEEP. Adolescents go to bed so late, not only because they're so active but because their bodies won't let them sleep earlier. With school starting so early in the morning, most students aren't getting their required sleep. "He sleeps past noon!" and "She's up all night!" are common phrases spoken by parents about their teenagers. Most parents are concerned about how much sleep their teen is getting at night.

As people progress from infancy to old age, their circadian rhythms shift. This means that teenagers will not get sleepy until the early morning hours, for example 1 or 2 a.m. If allowed to sleep, they will sleep for eight or nine hours. But that means they would not wake up until 10 or 11 a.m. Without their sleep, students are at risk for problems such as automobile crashes, poor performance in school and poor grades, depressed moods, and problems with peer and adult relationships. 

Therefore high schools should start later and end earlier in order to resolve these problems. There are arguments against this, such as after-school activities, especially sports, competing with this. But truth is that with everyone's cooperation and parental guidance, teenagers' chance of problems from being themselves and lack of sleep would be decreased.
