  • Adolescent Behavior In School - 1,601 words
    Adolescent Behavior In School Middle School is a large school and has students attending from six Putnam County towns and two Dutchess County towns. On the average, the graduating class has close to 500 students and the typical class has 32 students attending. The school has two cafeterias in order to accommodate it's large student population, one cafeteria to provide for fifth and sixth graders, and another for seventh and eighth graders.

    ... omfortable. The girl who was being "pushed" was blatently against the idea, her face was red, and I even headed her say several times, "I really don't want to do this, I feel like a jerk." Then she tried to bargain with her friends by saying, "I'll talk to him after Social class, I swear." But still the girls continued to drag her over to this boy. Then came the words I was waiting to hear, "You don't want to be the only one at this dance without a date, only the dorky girls go to the spring dance dateless!" Eventually this girl did end up going over to the boy outside. Another example of peer pressure I observed was within a group of boys. About five or six boys were "daring" one boy to ...

  • Censorship - 879 words
    Censorship Books The freedom to read is essential to the democratic way of life (Censorship News 1996). Today our freedom is under attack. Private groups such as mothers and public authorities everywhere are working to remove both books and periodicals from sale, to exclude certain books from public schools, to censor and silence magazines and newspapers, and to limit controversial books from the general public. The suppression of reading materials is suppression of creative thoughts. Books are not the only one that is being suppressed by pressure to the political and social systems.

  • Condom Distribution Vs Abstinence In Schools - 1,824 words
    Condom Distribution Vs. Abstinence In Schools CONDOM DISTRIBUTION VS. ABSTINENCE IN SCHOOLS Sexual Education was introduced to the American Public School System in 1913, at the beginning of this century.

  • Parental Delinquency - 606 words
    Parental Delinquency Parental Delinquency? Gone are the good old days when mom and dad were around to teach their children about morality and the basics of growing up. Instead, we see parents who have replaced caring and personal involvement with the purchase of material goods. We see parents who are afraid to discipline their children and who are afraid to set boundaries. We see parents who are afraid to hug their children and be involved in their lives. A child's behavior shows the kind of home he or she comes from. Parents are suppose to be role models, but what do we find. Parents are neglecting their responsibility. Parents, who ought to teach by precept and example, have fallen prey to ...

  • Peer Pressure - 339 words
    Peer Pressure Peer pressure can influence a person to start smoking, drinking, or doing drugs and other things that are harmful to his/her body.

Peer pressure can make a person feel really bad about him/herself, but a person must remember that peer pressure can be good or bad ...

  • Why Choose Abstinence - 1,438 words
    Why Choose Abstinence Through out the years, pre-marital sex has become more and more accepted in our society. It is depicted everyday in magazines, television shows, and movies.
