Intro to teens talk
topic of the night
This podcast will be discussing whether or not materialistic teens or more or less motivated to learn at school and how teachers can change this.
In 2010, males ages 15 to 19 were nearly four times more likely to commit suicide, six times more likely to be victims of homicide, and eight times more likely to be involved in a firearm-related death than were females of the same age.
Homicide and suicide is the second and third leading causes of death, respectively, among teen’s ages 15 to 19, after unintentional injury In 2010, firearms were the instrument of death in 85 percent of teen homicides and 40 percent of teen suicides.While non-firearm injuries result in death in only one out of every 760 cases, almost one in four youth firearm injuries are fatal.
Although other teens are the perpetrators of many of the homicides of teens below age 18, two-thirds of the murderers are eighteen or older.] Gang involvement has been associated with many teen murders; in 2002, nearly three-quarters of teen homicides were attributed to gang violence. Although school-related homicides receive substantial media attention, in the 2009-10 school years they accounted for about one percent of all child homicides.
Mood disorders, such as depression, dysthymia, and bipolar disease, are major risk factors for suicide among children and adolescents. One study found that more than 90 percent of children and adolescents who committed suicide had some type of mental disorder. Stressful life events and low levels of communication with parents may also be significant risk factors. Female teens are about twice as likely to attempt suicide; however, males are much more likely to actually commit suicide.
Every teens knows that their lives are stressful even if the adults around them don't believe it. Join my guest Kyneitres Good, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and myself this week as we discuss common teen stresses and strategies for coping with it.
Common teen stressors include:
Home-parents, responsibilities, siblings School-class work, extracurricular activities, peer group, drugs, sex Neighborhood-gangs, violence Physical symptoms related to stress.
When teens speak, do people listen?
Natalie, age 18, described her role model as a person with “a clear sense of what is important to her, putting forth the effort to improve and create things that will make a difference.” When Samira, also 18, feels “lazy, tired, or just plain annoyed,” she thinks of her role model and “is motivated to start working again.”
Natalie and Samira were part of my research study on how young people develop the skills, abilities, and motivation to become engaged citizens. They and 42 other college students recalled stories of their childhoods and adolescence and the kind of people who inspired them.
Role models come into young people’s lives in a variety of ways. They are educators, civic leaders, mothers, fathers, clergy, peers, and ordinary people encountered in everyday life. This study showed that being a role model is not constrained to those with fancy titles or personal wealth. In fact, students were quick to state that “a true role model is not the person with the best job title, the most responsibility, or the greatest fame to his or her name.” Anyone can inspire a child to achieve their potential in life.
On any given day in America, it is estimated that more than 1.5 million children have a parent incarcerated in a state or federal prison. And more than 10 million children are living with a parent who has come under some form of criminal justice supervision at some point in the child’s life.
The Annie E. Casey foundation discovered the compelling needs and circumstances of children with incarcerated parents, such as:
Since 1990, the number of female prisoners had grown by nearly 50 percent; three-quarters of incarcerated women are mothers, and two thirds have children under age 18.
Most law enforcement agencies lack training and protocols on where to place children when a parent is arrested and, often, ultimately incarcerated.
Approximately 10 percent of children with incarcerated mothers and 2 percent of children with incarcerated fathers are in foster care.
There are a disparate impact on minorities, with African-American children nine times more likely and Hispanic children three times more likely than white children to have a parent in prison.
Despite widespread statements that children with incarcerated parents are many times more likely than other children to be incarcerated as adults.
Risk factors such as parental mental illness, parental substance abuse, family violence and poverty were present in many children’s homes and lives prior to their parents’ incarceration.
