Click here for Emergency Resources and our Disclaimer This page addresses some of the most important issues facing our teenagers at this time.
These include teen suicide, teen violence, cyberbullying (online bullying), Internet & online addiction, teens and sex, teens and substance abuse, teen anorexia and eating disorders, violent video games, teans watching porn, TV violence, violence at home, & violent culture.
Most teenagers have been exposed to some form of porn.
The challenge for parents is not how to block teenagers from watching porn, because the teens will find a way to access it, but to have quality conversations on what is pornography, what is the draw, and how it affects their teens' lives and their view of males, females and sexuality.
Violence in the media, whether it is reflected in cartoons, shows, movies or music can desensitize children to the effects of violence and may also legitimize and glorify violence.
Cannabis use among teenagers has begun rising after years of declining use.
