A lot of times “quote,” wrote Myers (45). The conventional way of focusing more on appearance than on substance can turn “cool” people into superior beings. However to be cool can be seen as a negative attitude leading to individual indifference and their social life may go downhill. Drugs and alcohol are not cool and teens need to stop thinking that their lives revolve around it. All teenagers have their own reasons for taking drugs.
Goals change all of the time though, because of a lot of different reasons, maybe you found that one thing just really is not what you want to do with your life, so you find something else to do. To me that is just how life is, my goals will most likely change as I am getting older and trying to find what I want to do with the rest of my life. I feel like I have set many goals for my personal life throughout my childhood and
This conflict is old, but to be specific, this conflict between people of faith and the scientific community, is centered on prayer, and the use of prayer as a supplement to, or as a replacement for, medical treatment. Should prayer be used as the only means of healing? Should people that keep their children from medical assistance, resulting in the worsening of their condition, be punished? Are parents that do the things mentioned above, in fact, making martyrs for faith out of their children? As research on this topic is done and new facts are found eyes are opened to things such as these, and the conflict is becoming more and more prevalent and urgent.
Same reasons can be dedicated to children when their parents do not put time and effort to educate them. Many problems such as: lack of self-confidence, feeling insecure, not being in control and many more can occur later on when a child is grown up and is ready to step in the society. Parents should both together and separately put time for their children because the child learns some of the important life lessons from his or her mother such as: kindness, patient, and love, and some from his or her father like: hard work, staying strong, and maturity, and also learning the value of a family from both. If these needs are not fulfilled by parents the children spend their time with watching TVs and playing video games to stay away from their parents’ ignorance and also to gain the feeling of being a part of something. In order to have a better child in the future, parents should educate their children more with teaching them the positive influences such: family time, respect, and positive attitudes, so their child would not get his needs from other uneducated places such as: TV, video games, and wrong environments.
Finally, my greatest fear has to be a loss of health, as I am taking care of my family. This has to do with the fact that my father had a loss of health that affected me while growing up. I do not want my children to feel responsible for taking care of me, as I felt responsible taking care of my father. The fear of these losses does make the future seem terrifying but from the skills I learned from this class I am sure I will be able to handle them. If I cannot handle

Why is this desire more influential than the law? Partly because the potential benefits of drugs overwhelm us, and turn our focus away from the potential dangers and consequences.

Children struggling towards adulthood, independence, and confidence - without wisdom or knowledge to make educated decisions, often go to extreme lengths (drug use)to fit in.
For me to “come of age” means to grow up, to become wiser, and to become more responsible. Responsibility, privileges, and consequences are all a part of coming of age. When you get the privileges you need to be responsible with them and if you're not you will get consequences for that. When we “come of age” when we are in high school, for example driving it can teach us what we need to know when leave home along with any other things we learn or any mistakes we make. Even though it’s something that can’t be avoided I don’t think anyone is ready to grow up,who wants to grow up and have to figure out what it’s like to live in the real
Good Advice is Hard to Find Advice is something that is very important in my life and in the life of most others. It allows us to ask another person their feelings and experiences about certain situations they have encountered in his/hers lifetime and then attempt use that information to help yourself. Good advice however is hard to come by. My dad has many stories that begin with, “Well when I was your age…” This is an example of bad advice. It is hard to relate what he experienced to my life, because of the generations of difference.
Adversity is an experience of facing major obstacles that have an impact on someone's life. Adversity usually seen as a negative while it is happening but could be seen as a positive later on, even as a learning experience. Going through adversity has helped me explore my faith and strengthen it. Facing these obstacles every single day has been rough on me both mentally and spiritually because I know it is impossible to overcome. One thing that drives me crazy is that my adversity does not only affect myself, but it also weaves its way into the lives of my friends and family, even people I am just passing on the sidewalk.
