SOCIETY AND ITS PEOPLE
The world we live in always has a changing society because people think they should fit in certain society standers. It does not make any difference where you live most people will still try to be with a group of people. A lot of people will pay a lot of money just to be in some groups even if they do not like the people in the group. I have always tried to do things with people that make around the same amount of money as I do. I am willing to spend little more just to do something different as long as I don’t spend money I do not have. Trying to keep up with certain society groups can put yourselves in a lot of trouble.
Society has a way of making people change their life style for a life style they really don’t like that much. I have always tried to have a few friends in every different group of people I am around. If your society of life is based on that type of life you will always have a lot more friends. Society should not dictate how your life should be lived. You will always have problems with groups of people if you do not really live their life style. If you try to keep up with the Joneses all the time you may lose a lot of good friends.
When you see shopping ads that stores create in order make you think you need to pay more, this is a form of high society. The whole society standard is based on how much you can afford to spend on the things you buy. Most people who make good money will still shop at stores that sell things cheaper. High society people will always try buy stuff cheaper and most of the time and they will never tell anyone about it.
The next time you think you need to be in a certain society group, check to see if you really need the people in that group. When you take the time to see which social group you adapt to best, you will like the idea of just being with someone you really want to be around. This way you will not have to try to impress people that you really don’t like. Just be yourself and you will have a better social life.

5) Wild teen girls: Dangerous lifestyle patterns
Early in life you aren’t given very many choices. As a child, your parental figures make them for you, hoping to instill right from wrong. Some children don’t have model parents and depend ultimately on what their society teaches them. Young in life, some children are abused physically, verbally and / or sexually. Reasons behind wild teen girls and dangerous lifestyle patterns can be many.
The drinking, the drugs and the multiple partners is the easy way out of a temporary problem with long term consequences. You depressed and angry. No one understands except you and your friends with a bottle of liquor, and a bag of weed. You know what is best because only you know you and what you going through. Besides, what have you got to lose?
A major problem with teens, is they don’t have a clue what their resources are. Usually by the time someone realizes there’s a problem, it’s gotten way out of control for the teen. They get lost in the underbelly of their society, making it harder for the teen to turn it around quickly. Established friendships with bad influences are tough to break and won’t happen easily.
Since the 60’s, teen suicide rates have tripled. Every year, 1 in 4 teenagers contracts an STD. Teen pregnancies have only dropped 72 out of every 1,000 females. This includes births, abortions and miscarriages.
High schools now provide daycare for teens still wanting to come back and graduate after giving birth. Police officers are designated to specific school districts to make their presence known. D. A. R. E. has become a joke if it even exists at their schools. Dangerous behavior is becoming more acceptable because now it is expected from teens.
Instead of only giving these girls ways to cope with the out comes of their poor choices, they need positive influences in the early teen years. A good role model can go a long way, especially if they don’t have one at all to begin with. Even though they are old enough to take care of themselves while mom and dad are gone, doesn’t mean they are old enough to handle the pressures of society and potential hazardous outcomes on their own.
We can’t protect anyone from everything, nor is it our responsibility. It is our responsibility as parental figures, teachers, counselors, and community members to promote education. The goal here is to reach these girls before the dangerous lifestyle patterns become a dangerous lifestyle period.
