Teen Issues

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hello everybody,

I am currently writing an essay on what the most common problems and issues that teenagers face are.

Below is a list of categories I have come up with, and I am just after a bit of feedback if possible as to whether you think some categories are more important than others, whether some categories aren't important at all, or even whether I've left any out!!!

  • Abuse
  • Bereavement
  • Care
  • Disability Support
  • Domestic Violence
  • Drugs, Alcohol & Smoking
  • Environmental Issues
  • Family Life
  • Friends & Peers
  • General Health
  • Housing
  • Mental Health
  • Money & Finance
  • Nutrition & Fitness
  • Pregnancy & Parenting
  • Sex & Relationships
  • Schoolwork & Careers
  • Religion

Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated :yippe:

    I don't think that I can think of annything that isn't already there. I think that you have come up with all of them though.

    Some other major issues are eating disorders and body image issues... Don't know if that helped but good luck with your essay:)

    Seems pretty much like you've covered everything. Self-esteem, bullying, peer pressure etc
