    CONVERSATION WITH A 14 YEAR OLD TEENAGE BOY ABOUT SURVIVING AS A TEENS IN TODAY

    in Social Networking

    Adolescence is a time of growth, development and change. Your teen will develop emotionally and socially as well as physically. This development may seem seamless to you, but there are distinct things happening in your teenager's social and emotional development that are helping them become who they are going to be - helping them to form their identity. While these changes don't follow a timeline to the date of your teen's birthday - your 14-year-old may still act like a 13-year-old socially - teens of different ages do have different social and emotional focuses andbehaviors. Here we have a list of them by age.


    Thirteen-year-old teens are dealing with the physical changes in their body - puberty - emotionally as well as physically. Change is not easy for most people at any age and your 13-year-old is dealing with one of the biggest changes of their lives. This will cause your young teen to feel uncertain, moody and be sensitive to what others think of them, especially their peers.

    TEENS HOMICIDE, SUICIDE AND FIREARM DEATHS

    in Social Networking

    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.


    IMPORTANCE


    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.

    Teens who text and drive take even more risks while driving

    in Social Networking

    More than 4 in 10 teens admit to texting while driving, and those that do are more likely to engage in other risks while driving.


     


    If your teen texts while driving, chances are he or she also practices other dangerous motor vehicle habits — including failing to buckle up and driving after they have been drinking, a new federal analysis finds.


    In 2011, 45% of all students 16 and older reported that they had texted or e-mailed while driving during the past 30 days, says the study by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and reported in June's Pediatrics, released online today.


    Teens who texted while driving were five times more likely than those who didn't to drive when they had been drinking alcohol. And the more they texted the worse their seat belt habit. Teens who texted every day while driving during the past month were more than 40% more likely to not always wear their seat belts than were teens who engaged in texting while driving once or twice in the past 30 days.


    It's not surprising that kids who take such risks in one area may be more likely to take risks in other areas, says CDC Director Thomas Frieden.


    "But the big picture is that the greatest single risk to teenagers in this country is getting hurt or killed in a motor vehicle crash; that's the most likely thing to result in their death," he says. "And texting while driving makes teen driving even more dangerous."

    Get Smart Dating for Teens. The How To's on Dating Skills...

    in Family

    Dating doesn’t have to be hard.  Where can teens get valuable information regarding dating?  Get Smart Dating. My guest speaker, Janice Hoffman, founder of Get Smart Dating has been teaching high school teens how to understand the opposite sex when it comes to dating, how to be sexually responsible in a fun and interactive way since 1997.


    Teens today have a harder time dating than in the past.  They have fewer role models and no formal education on communication skills, especially when it comes to dating.  They are expected to “just know” how to have successful relationships.


    Get Smart Dating is looking to train qualified individuals to teach this life-changing prgram to teens in their area.  Teaching teenagers and young adults about their differences regarding dating, especially in this world where students are texting rather than talking, provides necessary social skills.  Get Smart Dating helps teens be successful in their relationships. Join Janice and I as we discuss how we can educate our young ones on how to communicate in having healthier relationships tonite Friday Nov 21st at 9pm CT at www.blogtalkradio.com/ritahodges live.
