When they fell in love, she was barely into her teens, and he wasn't much older. Some saw a star-crossed couple who found understanding, joy and maturity in each other's arms. Others saw impulsive kids whose reckless passion cut them off from family, friends and more appropriate interests, provoked mood swings, delinquent behavior and experimentation with drugs, and ended in tragedy.

Romeo and Juliet's story is centuries old, but these two very different views of adolescent romance live on, often simultaneously, in the minds of bemused parents.

Lately, teenage romance has caught the attention of a number of researchers, who are increasingly interested in its potentially positive as well as negative effects -- not just on adolescence, but on adult relationships and well-being.

According to Dr. Wyndol Furman, an editor of the book ''The Development of Romantic Relationships in Adolescence,'' understanding teenage dating means understanding that adolescence is ''a roiling emotional caldron whose major fuel -- more than parents, peers or school and almost as much as those things combined -- is the opposite sex.''

Dr. Furman, a professor of psychology at the University of Denver, said adolescents' lack of social skills and emotional control can make relationships difficult. Yet, he said, romantic relationships can also be significant sources of support that offer teenagers fun and companionship, help them forge mature identities and offer them practice in managing emotions.

''Growing up involves risks,'' he said. ''Parents are naturally concerned about their teens' relationships, but they shouldn't want them to just stay home.''

Setting guidelines requires an appreciation of the profound differences between 13- and 19-year-olds. Among the so-called ''tweens'' of middle school, Dr. Furman said, the point of a crush ''is mostly to be able to say you have a…...

The Effect of Teenage Pregnancy

...Why do teenagers lose their interest in school? When students are not successful with their studies it often starts a negative downward spiral in their commitment to school. When they feel less positive about school they generally are less interested in extra-curricular activities - sports, music, and clubs. For many students, it is their success in extra-curricular activities that fuels their desire to remain in school. If students have no success in either academic or extra-curricular activities they have no incentives to go to school. Consequently, they have no attachment to their school. Too many parents are not firm enough with their children and their education. Parents fail to impress upon their children the importance of remaining in school and that dropping-out is detrimental to their future. Sometimes teens drop-out because of a lack of fear instilled into them by their parents. Many teens have little or no parental supervision. Coupled with a lack of communication skills between parents and teens, the result can be a lack of involvement with school. There is an absence of effort put forth by many of today's students. They seem quite lackadaisical and have no discipline when it comes to their studies. Continual failure is often a prescription for tremendous overload and stress. It tends to amount to the self-fulfilling prophecy of dropping-out. Dropping-out is their only escape. Dropping-out can be prevented. Selling teens on the benefits of staying in......

Effects of Teenage Peer Pressure

...The effects of Teenage Peer Pressure Hunter Clark Marion Technical College In today’s society, most teenagers are extremely influenced by their friends. Relying on friends more than family is very common among today’s teenagers. Unfortunately this results in poor decision making skills and giving into peer pressure. Many teenagers, before the age of 15 years old will have tried drinking, sex, and recreational drugs. Underage drinking is very popular among teenagers. Research has shown that 70% of parties held by a teenager serve alcohol. Many times these parties have no adult supervision, which can result in a disaster. When a teenager is new to drinking he/she can possibly overdose on alcohol. Drinking too much will impair their thinking process which will then lead to horrible decisions such as drinking and driving. Today’s teens are willing to do almost anything to fit in and become popular. If a teenager drinks then drives he/she not only risk his/her own life but the life of the others. He/she choose to drink to fit in with the crowd, not thinking of the consequences. Many teenagers try drugs out of peer pressure and curiosity. They think it will make him/her look cool and fearless. Many teens are actually afraid to try drugs but do it anyway because they are in an environment where others are doing it as well. Drugs can become very addictive and if they like the “buzz” they get the first time, then they will continue to use and form a deadly habit. Doing drugs......

Teenage Pregnancy

...Introduction When a teenage girl gets pregnant, this phenomenon is called teenage pregnancy. Teenage pregnancy is treated differently in many cultures. A great number of countries, mostly in Asia treat it like a regular thing due to their traditions and peculiarities of the culture. But the Western civilization treats teenage pregnancy like a negative phenomenon, because young people are supposed to study and have normal years of life, without burden and big problems. Unfortunately, teenage pregnancy is quite a frequent thing. Every day we can hear about the cases when a 15-year-old girl has got pregnant and parents do not know what to do. Teenagers are too young to be allowed to get married, and a child commonly lives in single parent family (very often it is difficult to identify the father of the baby). The most common decision of the teenagers and their parents is to get rid of pregnancy. Abortion in such a young age is quite a regular thing nowadays, because a baby is a great responsibility and one can not study and work having it. On the other hand abortion influences the girl’s body badly and it is the next problem. So, the topic is extremely urgent in modern society and nearly every student is asked to prepare a research paper on teenage pregnancy and analyze the problem deeply. Students have to spend much time to discover some cultural aspects and points of view towards teenage pregnancy of different people of the world. They have to brainstorm good methods and...

The Negative Effects of Teenage Pregnancy

...a high school diploma and only 30 percent have earned a General Education Development (GED) certificate, whereas 90 percent of women who did not give birth during adolescence receive a high school diploma.1 Only about 10 percent of teen mothers complete a two- or four-year college program.2 Teen fathers have a 25 to 30 percent lower probability of graduating from high school than teenage boys who are not fathers.3 Children who are born to teen mothers also experience a wide range of problems. For example, they are more likely to: have a higher risk for low birth weight and infant mortality; have lower levels of emotional support and cognitive stimulation; have fewer skills and be less prepared to learn when they enter kindergarten; have behavioral problems and chronic medical conditions; rely more heavily on publicly funded health care; have higher rates of foster care placement; be incarcerated at some time during adolescence; have lower school achievement and drop out of high school; give birth as a teen; and be unemployed or underemployed as a young adult.4 These immediate and long-lasting effects continue for teen parents and their children even after adjusting for the factors that increased the teen’s risk for pregnancy—e.g., growing up in poverty, having parents with low levels of education, growing up in a single-parent family, and having low attachment to and performance in school.5 Teen pregnancy costs U.S. taxpayers about $11 billion per year due to increased health...

...Teenage Pregnancy Indiana vs. Kentucky Michell Davis Ivy Tech Community College April 2016 Abstract Teenage pregnancy, was once considered an epidemic in this country. What is it considered today?

What are some of the causative factors for the difference in numbers between these two states? Positive and negative effects of teenage pregnancy, along with why teenage pregnancy rates have continued to decrease since 1992, not only in the United States as a whole, but in Indiana and Kentucky as well. To conclude this research, I will discuss the practices or techniques that are being used to curb and prevent this epidemic problem. Today is April 19th, 2016 and the time is 6:00 p.m., in a suburb outside of Indianapolis, IN. Did you know that before mid-night, “23 Hoosier teenagers will become pregnant?’ This is a statistic that was released by Plan parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky in 2015 (Lieber, 2015).

...teenage pregnancy is a complex and controversial social issue in the USA of teenage females getting pregnant. In the underdeveloped countries the practice of having teenage pregnancies is not unique but rather is usual since most women are expected to be married and have children before they turn 20. The problem for the society with teenage pregnancies is that teenagers are believed not to be ready emotionally and financially to raise their children even though they are indeed physiologically capable of producing offspring. Teenage girls when getting pregnant typically are involved in some form of school education and do depend on their parents and relatives at least to a certain degree. In most cases the father of the baby in teenage pregnancy is of similar age and thus is also financially and emotionally unprepared to raise a baby. Dependence on his parents is also the fact. The greatest concern in teenage pregnancy is seen when the mother was below the age of consent when the child was conceived while the father was clearly above the age of consent. If a teenage mother chooses not to keep the child she has two options: Abortion. The child is not even born and the pregnancy is interrupted (Edelman, 2003). Adoption. The child is born, yet the mother gives it away. According to various researches in the USA more than 30% of teenage pregnancies result in abortions. At the same time the relationship between a teenage mother and a father usually turns into a......

The Effects of Teenage Pregnancy

...The Effects of Teenage Pregnancy Daniel E. Asante English Composition Strayer University North Charlotte Campus The Effect of Teenage Pregnancy Teenage pregnancy is a social problem that has existed for over a century and has always been a great concern to every nation due to the numerous adverse consequences it brings on both the economy and society at large. In the middle of the 70s, teenage pregnancy had reached an astronomical height that it was described as “epidemic” by the Alan Guttmacher Institute in a booklet entitled “11 Million Teenagers” which was widely circulated at the time (Gallagher, M., 1999). This, in fact, put pressure on Congress at the time to pass a bill that would increase family planning fund by hundred percent as a strategy to curtail teenage pregnancy “epidemic” (Gallagher, M., 1999). The rate of Teenage Pregnancy rose from 23.9 births per 1000 single female teenagers in 1975 to 31.4 in 1985, and to 46.4 in 1994. In the last part of the 90s, the rate had dropped by16 percent. For teenagers between 15 and 19 years, the rate of teen pregnancy had dropped by 36 per cent by 2002 and 33 per cent by 2004 (Gallagher, M., 1999). Until recent times, Teenage pregnancy was considered an abomination and a mockery to a family. It carried a stigma and a disgrace to the young mothers and their immediate families. The young mothers were often considered sinners and the children born out of wedlock were referred to as bastards or illegitimate. The......

Effects of Teenage Relationships to the Teenagers

...Close Family Ties Amid the many changes in Filipino dating culture due to multicultural influences, one thing that hasn’t changed is how Filipinos value their families. Close family ties are an important bond for each member of the family. A guy who wants to date a girl must ask for her parents' permission. In case no permission is granted, it is highly unlikely for the date to actually happen, unless in some cases that the girl and guy sneak out and date out secretly. However, this is morally unacceptable in Philippine culture. Filipino parents are very strict with their children having romantic relationships. Brothers are generally protective of their sisters. Even cousins and other relatives are protective of their young female cousins and relatives. They become more lenient when their daughters, sisters and relatives reach the legal age of 18. When picking up the girl at her home for a date, it is common to provide gifts to the family members (parents, grandparents and siblings) as well. Parents usually want to have some conversation with the guy and ask about his family and educational background before they can go out for a date. First Date The first date is officially a time to get to know each other. The couple ask about each other’s backgrounds and it is highly unlikely to have a passionate kiss after the date. Some girls allow a kiss on the cheek after the first date, but this varies per person and per couple. Some guys don’t even get......
