Some of the things I learned about this topic is that it is a big issue. I didn’t think there where so many different problems that involved teens and alcohol. Underage Drinking can be the cause of a lot of different problems. When people are under the influence so many accidents can occur and innocent people can get hurt. Some teens become depressed when they are drinking and some even think of harming others or themselves. Teens always act different when they are under the influence. Most teens do not know what they are doing or regret what they did the next day.
Some of the things i understand are that a lot of teens like to drink because it’s a “fun” thing to do or the “cool” thing to do. Sometimes teens like to compete to see who can get drunk the quickest or to see who will pass out first. I also think that movies and music can be the cause of young people drinking. Pop culture can be a big part of that too. Pier pressure is a big part to the whole drinking scene because the “cool” kids are the ones who are telling you if you don’t drink than your a loser or you wont fit in. Some of the things I don’t understand are how some parents don’t know what there kids are up too. Sometimes parents should be more careful because teens today are growing up in a world with so many possibilities.
My topic makes me feel a little frustrated at times because I have seen a lot of things happened with teens who drink. I just hope parents can be a lot more careful with there teens or kids. I feel frustrated because so many of these stories are true and I’ve seen some happen. I still wonder why parents are so clueless to what there kids do for fun. Some parents just need to open there eyes and see what types of friends there kids are making. Not too many things left for me to wonder or ask about, This is a topic that a lot of teens are familiar with.
