First Student's Respond
I can agree with my peer that adolescents are young people facing many problems that arrive every day. Because of developing character and personality their thinking for adolescents not always are bounded with many decisions and views of adolescent. I see teens around me that always turn in trouble and not because they willing to but I think unwilling and this just happen every day. Casey research supports fact I already cited and say there is “an increased incidence of unintentional violence, substance abuse, and sexually transmitted diseases” (Casey et al, 2008, p. 111). I think that all teachers who teaching need to know students and they need help them many ways when they see concerns of students.
Second Student's Respond
My peer wrote much about adolescents that can not control mood and feelings both they may have as persons. For this theme I can cite research to support my statement I wrote of “emotional reactivity”. Research find out that groups of adolescents are in environment changing all the times and meaning that “more time is spent with peers versus adults, and more conflicts arise between adolescent and his/her parents” (Casey et al, 2008, p. 111). Grown up people who teach teens always see changes in teenagers as first and when they understand psychology then they know about brain and critical changes it has with young teens. I agree it influences communication much and other things too.
Third Student's Respond
I believe not all society we live and members of our society care about adolescents but they must care because teens are future. I agree for teens is interesting to know about how the brain work because they are young and developing physically, and emotionally. Learning from teacher about physical development also about brain help them understand emotions and control how to better behave. Social life and emotional life are together but not all teacher teach these important things at schools.
