Pregnancies averted among U.S. teenagers by the use of contraceptives. (1/3537)

CONTEXT: The personal and social costs associated with teenage pregnancy in the United States concern many policymakers and researchers, yet the role of contraception in preventing these pregnancies has not been adequately quantified. METHODS: Published estimates of contraceptive effectiveness were applied to 1995 National Survey of Family Growth data on sexual and contraceptive practices in order to estimate the number of pregnancies averted through the use of contraceptives by U.S. teenagers. Four scenarios of contraceptives access--from current levels of access to highly restricted access--and teenagers' sexual and contraceptive practices in response to such restrictions are used to project the potential impact on pregnancies among teenagers. RESULTS: Current levels of contraceptive use averted an estimated 1.65 million pregnancies among 15-19-year-old women in the United States during 1995. If these young women had been denied access to both prescription and over-the-counter contraceptive methods, an estimated one million additional pregnancies (ranging from 750,000 to 1.25 million) would have occurred, assuming some decrease in sexual activity. These pregnancies would have led to 480,000 live births, 390,000 abortions, 120,000 miscarriages, 10,000 ectopic pregnancies and 37 maternal deaths. CONCLUSIONS: Contraceptive use by teenage women prevents pregnancies and negative pregnancy-related health consequences that can disrupt the lives of adolescent women and that have substantial societal costs. Continued and expanded access to contraceptives for adolescents is a critically important public health strategy.  (+info)

Marijuana use among minority youths living in public housing developments. (2/3537)

Youths residing in public housing developments appear to be at markedly heightened risk for drug use because of their constant exposure to violence, poverty, and drug-related activity. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of marijuana etiology with adolescents (N = 624) residing in public housing. African-American and Hispanic seventh graders completed questionnaires about their marijuana use, social influences to smoke marijuana, and sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics. Results indicated that social influences, such as friends' marijuana use and perceived ease of availability of marijuana, significantly predicted both occasional and future use of marijuana. Individual characteristics such as antimarijuana attitudes and drug refusal skills also predicted marijuana use. The findings imply that effective prevention approaches that target urban youths residing in public housing developments should provide them with an awareness of social influences to use marijuana, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of marijuana smoking, and train adolescents in relevant psychosocial skills.  (+info)

Provocative appeals in anti-smoking mass media campaigns targeting adolescents--the accumulated effect of multiple exposures. (3/3537)

This paper reports findings from a longitudinal study that evaluated the accumulated effect of three consecutive mass media campaigns using provocative and dissonance arousing appeals to prevent cigarette smoking by adolescents. In the spring of 1992, all eligible adolescents aged 14 and 15 in one intervention county (N = 4898) and one control county (N = 5439) in Norway were included in the study, and were followed until they were 17 and 18 years of age in 1995. Only students who completed questionnaires both in 1992 and 1995 were included in the analyses. Among the non-smokers at baseline, a significantly lower proportion of adolescents of both genders had started to smoke in the intervention county compared to the proportion in the control county. Among those who were smokers at baseline, significantly more girls in the intervention county had stopped smoking than in the control county, while no significant difference between the counties was detected among boys. Our findings suggest that provocative and dissonance arousing appeals that create affective reactions and lead to interpersonal communication should be given more attention in campaigns designed to influence adolescent smoking. However, such appeals may easily produce negative reactions and the normative context should be thoroughly considered when using such appeals in future interventions.  (+info)

School and community influences on adolescent alcohol and drug use. (4/3537)

Social environment risk factors present in schools and communities have not been thoroughly investigated. This study cross-sectionally examined the social environments of schools and communities, and their influence on adolescent alcohol and drug use. Survey responses of eighth grade students (N = 2309), a random half of their parents (n = 943), community leaders (n = 118), school principals (n = 30), school counselors (n = 30) and chemical health providers (n = 14) were pooled to create indices of social environmental norms, role models, social support and opportunities for non-use of alcohol. Each index was examined for its association with prevalences from 30 schools of alcohol use onset, last-month alcohol use, heavy alcohol use and last-year marijuana use in univariate and stepwise regression analyses. Increases in the levels of norms, role models and opportunities for non-use predicted decreases in alcohol use prevalences. The explanatory power of the examined constructs in multivariate analyses was acceptably high (R2: 38-53%). These findings further support the notion that community-wide efforts need to be launched to affect changes in the normative, role model and opportunity structures of adolescents' social environments in order to curb adolescent alcohol and drug use.  (+info)

Psychosocial correlates of health compromising behaviors among adolescents. (5/3537)

The objective of the present study was to examine psychosocial correlates of diverse health-compromising behaviors among adolescents of different ages. The study population included 123,132 adolescents in sixth, ninth and 12th grades. Psychosocial correlates of substance abuse, delinquency, suicide risk, sexual activity and unhealthy weight loss behaviors were examined. Risk-taking disposition was significantly associated with nearly every behavior across age and gender groups. Other consistent correlates included sexual abuse and family connectedness. Correlates of health-compromising behaviors tended to be consistent across age groups. However, stronger associations were noted between sexual abuse and substance use for younger adolescents, and risk-taking disposition and school achievement were stronger correlates for older youth. The results suggest the presence of both common and unique etiological factors for different health-compromising behaviors among youth. The results emphasize the importance of focusing on positive 'risk-taking' experiences for youth in prevention programs; being sensitive to possible sexual abuse experiences among both female and male adolescents in health-care consultations; integrating strategies for improved family connectedness into health promotion efforts; and making school relevant for all adolescents.  (+info)

Underage drivers are separating drinking from driving. (6/3537)

OBJECTIVES: From 1985 to 1995, drivers younger than 21 years experienced a 50% drop in fatal crashes involving alcohol. This study addresses whether the decrease is explained by young drivers' drinking less or by their separating drinking from driving. METHODS: Nighttime roadside surveys were conducted in 3 communities to test drivers' breath and administer questionnaires on drinking practices. From 1992 to 1996, 34,898 drivers (21% of whom were younger than 21 years) were interviewed. RESULTS: Although drivers younger than 21 years were more likely to have consumed 6 or more drinks on at least 1 occasion during the previous month, a smaller percentage of younger drivers than of older drivers had blood alcohol concentrations of 0.01 or higher. CONCLUSIONS: Younger drivers are more likely than drivers older than 21 years to separate drinking from driving.  (+info)

Estimating adolescent cigarette consumption in Japan. (7/3537)

We estimated the cigarette consumption among Japanese adolescents based on the data which was obtained from a 1990 nationwide school-based questionnaire survey of smoking prevalence among high school students. Cigarette consumption for adolescents was estimated using the data on current smokers' rate and cigarette consumption per day. Participants were 57,189 high school students (aged 13-18 years) including 4666 current smokers. The estimated adolescents' consumption was calculated at 3.5 to 4.3 billion units in 1990. The proportion of adolescents' consumption to the total sales was 1.1% to 1.3%. The corresponding tax amounted to between 21 and 25 billion yen in 1990. The difference between the total sales and the crude cigarette consumption for adults has increased gradually over 20 years. Logically, some part of this increase should be attributed to cigarettes consumed by adolescents. The increase in this difference seemed to keep pace with the increasing number of cigarette vending machines. These results indicate that a considerable amount of cigarettes were consumed by adolescents in 1990.  (+info)

The impact of after-school peer contact on early adolescent externalizing problems is moderated by parental monitoring, perceived neighborhood safety, and prior adjustment. (8/3537)

Unsupervised peer contact in the after-school hours was examined as a risk factor in the development of externalizing problems in a longitudinal sample of early adolescents. Parental monitoring, neighborhood safety, and adolescents' preexisting behavioral problems were considered as possible moderators of the risk relation. Interviews with mothers provided information on monitoring, neighborhood safety, and demographics. Early adolescent (ages 12-13 years) after-school time use was assessed via a telephone interview in grade 6 (N = 438); amount of time spent with peers when no adult was present was tabulated. Teacher ratings of externalizing behavior problems were collected in grades 6 and 7. Unsupervised peer contact, lack of neighborhood safety, and low monitoring incrementally predicted grade 7 externalizing problems, after controlling for family background factors and grade 6 problems. The greatest risk was for those unsupervised adolescents living in low-monitoring homes and comparatively unsafe neighborhoods. The significant relation between unsupervised peer contact and problem behavior in grade 7 held only for those adolescents who already were high in problem behavior in grade 6. These findings point to the need to consider individual, family, and neighborhood factors in evaluating risks associated with young adolescents' after-school care experiences.  (+info)

Our primary objective was to assess the specific impact of paternal parenting processes on adolescent sexual behavior. Overall, we found a lack of research on the influence of fathers despite the well-documented importance of familial variables in shaping adolescent behavior.4,6 Critical paternal process variables apparent in the literature include paternal attitudes toward adolescent sexual activity, monitoring and discipline, paternal involvement in the life of their adolescent child, emotional qualities of the father-adolescent relationship, and father-adolescent communication about sex.. Our review suggests several plausible paternal mechanisms of import to adolescent sexual behavior and outcomes. The most consistent finding across reviewed studies, including those using both cross-sectional and intervention design, was the significant association between father-adolescent communication and adolescent sexual behaviors such as increased condom use and abstinence from sex.32,35 In general, ...
The objective of this study was to determine the factors that increase the risk of HIV infection in rural school-going adolescents and young adults. This was a cross-sectional study of 430 secondary school students (47.4% boys and 52.6% girls) from two rural schools in South Africa. Data were collected with a self-administered questionnaire on demographic information, sources of HIV/AIDS information, HIV knowledge, sexual behaviors, communication and negotiation skills, self-efficacy to refuse sex, peer influence and time perspective. Out of 113 (27.2%) participants who reported being sexually active, about 48% reported having had sex before the age of 15 and 42.2% reported penetrative sex with more than one partner in their lifetime. Only 44.8% of them reported consistent and regular use of condoms for every sexual encounter. Peer influence (OR = 3.01 (95% CI = 1.97-4.60)), gender difference (OR = 6.60 (95% CI = 1.62-26.84)) and lack of HIV information (OR = 1.22 (95% CI = 1.03-1.44)) ...
Are you interested in conducting academic research on adolescents sexuality? If so, youll need to consider the unique challenges for researchers of this field. Academic research on this subject is controversial and challenging due to disagreements about a standard definition of sex, ethical and methodological considerations of studying minors, and the inherent sensitivity of the subject matter. Among the most salient challenges is the inconsistent definition of sex used across research studies. More rigid definitions define sex as when a penis penetrates the vagina. Some researchers have a more lenient definition, and include anything from kissing to penetrative sex. However, even more lenient definitions that ultimately dichotomize sex are limiting from a statistical standpoint, as it is generally preferred to have behaviors on a spectrum rather than a dyadic yes/no. This is because a continuous variable allows for greater variability in analyses. A continuous alternative to asking about ...
Data from the MYRBS provide accurate estimates of the prevalence of risk behaviors among public high school students in the Commonwealth, and are used to determine statewide changes in the prevalence of these behaviors over time. The data are important for planning health education and risk prevention programs. Additionally, the results of the MYRBS contribute to a national database of adolescent risk behaviors. Through careful examination of the MYRBS results, state and local agencies can use the data to set priorities for improving the health of students across the Commonwealth.. Results for individual schools, districts, towns, or regions are not possible from the statewide MYRBS, as survey methodology is designed to give state level estimates only. However, many schools and districts choose to conduct or participate in local surveys to gather data about the risk behaviors of their own students. While often confused with the MYRBS; these surveys are not administered, monitored or tracked by ...

AU - Gentzler, Kari C.. PY - 2016. Y1 - 2016. N2 - Drawing on the Prototype/Willingness Model of Adolescent Risk Behavior, we used longitudinal data collected from North American Indigenous early adolescents (ages 10-12 years) to examine the interactive effects of favorable drinker prototypes, perceived drinking norms, and past-year drinking behavior on subsequent drinking behavior (i.e., drinking behavior 1 year later and growth in drinking behavior from 1-5 years later). We found that the positive association between favorable drinker prototypes and drinking 1 year later was strongest for adolescents who were high in past-year drinking and perceived low drinking norms. The interaction pattern for growth in drinking was more complex and suggested an important pattern; specifically, favorable drinker ...
Any doubt as to whether great and concerted effort is needed to deal with this pressing issue was emphasized within a few days after our meeting. Called to my attention was a most disturbing event which was to take place also in Austin. South By Southwest (SXSW), a major annual event featuring music, technology, and a whole range of activities for young folks, was scheduled to begin in just a few weeks. However, this year, a new service was being added. Bang With SXSW, a spin off of something called Bang With Friends. As described in an ABC News article, Started by three young twenty-somethings, Bang with Friends allows you to sign into the service via Facebook and then select the friends of the opposite sex youd like to, well, bang. If that friend also selects you, you will both receive a notification that the other is down to bang. Forget match-making, this is Internet sex-making ...
What does it mean to set limits with your teenager?. To begin with, setting limits means having what we call House Rules. These are agreed upon (and sometimes written) rules regarding issues such as hours, use of the car, alcohol and drugs, studying and grades. Parents can also have an understanding with their teens regarding work, money management, family outings, and even dating and friends. Setting limits can also include agreements about how to handle violations of the contracts that have been made.. Why is setting limits with your teenager such a crucial thing for parents to do? Why is setting limits such an important concept these days? What happens to teenagers who dont respect limits? What are they like as adults?. Limits are important for two reasons. First, limits and rules are a part of life. In a sense, they are also a prescription for how to live a good life. Being able to put up with reasonable restrictions and guidelines is part of what is known as high frustration tolerance ...

The number of Latino adolescents who report depressive symptoms has risen, according to the most recent data from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). In 2019, 40 percent of Hispanic high schoolers reported feeling sad or hopeless almost every day for two or more weeks in a row so that they stopped doing some usual activities. This was a significant increase from the 34 percent who reported feeling sad or hopeless in 2017 and represents the groups highest level recorded by the YRBS within the last 20 years. Hispanic adolescent females were especially likely to report feeling this way, with 50 percent reporting these symptoms compared to 29 percent of Hispanic adolescent males. Symptoms of depression are linked to poor academic and social outcomes and can increase the risk of suicide. In 2019, 17 percent of Hispanic adolescents reported having considered attempting suicide, with females likelier than males (23% and 11%, respectively). ...

More than 30,000 adolescents in the United States die annually from the effects of chronic illnesses. The anxiety from facing a terminal illness often hinders adolescents in making decisions about their own end-of-life (EOL) care. Although minors preferences are not legally binding, legislature, research, and professional guidelines all recommend that adolescent patients become involved in EOL decisions as part of routine intervention while they are stable. Family Centered Advance Care Planning (FCACP) is an intervention that facilitates EOL discussion among adolescents, their families, and their care providers. This pilot study will examine FCACPs effects on adaptive coping, psychological adjustment, quality of life, and plans and actions in HIV infected adolescents. The study will also provide feedback used for improving the FCACP Web site.. This study will include HIV or AIDS infected adolescents ranging in age from 14 to 21 who will jointly enroll with a selected surrogate older than 21. ...

Sexual behavior among adolescents with HIV-positive mothers was less prevalent than among other adolescents, but was more likely to occur with adolescent alcohol use, lack of parental monitoring, and poorer physical functioning of HIV-positive mothers.
This book was carried out with the intention of showing the peculiarities of the scientific paradigm of Embodied Cognition (EC) (Gallese, 2005), by highlighting its application in practice (Sousa, 2010), especially in the world of education. The new perspective proves to be significant, mainly due to the importance of learning about brain development in the Evolutionary Age, understanding children and adolescents behaviors and preventing possible problems at an early age. Moreover, it proves to be significant for highlighting the particular impact that social environment and cultural climate have on learning, as well as on the brains ability to generate new neurons into older age, along with its changeability (concept of plasticity understood as modeling of the morphology and the function of neural networks mainly induced by experience). These key aspects have led to a multi-perspective view of the human minds functioning. (Imprint: Nova ...

Adolescents need a lot of calories to support the rapid growth that occurs during this time and to fuel their busy lives. The amount of calories that your teen needs varies depending on age, sex, and activity level. Most adolescent girls need somewhere around 2,200 calories per day, while most adolescent boys need 2,500-3,000 calories per day.. In between school work, sports, and other activities, teens are often so busy they dont have time to eat balanced meals that provide the calories and nutrients they need. Still, its also easy to eat too many calories, especially when poor food choices are made. Over time, this can lead to being overweight and ...

A Your question is difficult to answer. It goes far beyond usual office pediatrics and addresses the fabric of our family life and society. I will answer your query as well as I can perhaps some readers would like to send in their own reply. I commend you for attracting adolescents to your practice and for seeing them in private. That they are willing to tell you about some of their behaviors says a good deal about the trust they have developed in you. You are right to be concerned about their well-being and their future. As physicians for children and adolescents, it is our responsibility to prepare our young people as best we can for good physical and emotional health in adulthood. One thought that I have kept in mind in my years in practice with adolescents (and as a parent of adolescents) is that one needs to call things the way one sees them, nonjudgmentally and without accusations. This means that you should let your adolescent patients know your concerns about their lack of success in ...

The dose for the first group of children and adolescents enrolled on the study will be based on the side effects seen in adults. Between 2 and 6 children and adolescents will receive LY3023414 at this dose. If the side effects are not too severe, the next group of children and adolescents will receive a higher dose. If there are too many side effects, the next group of children and adolescents will receive a lower dose. Dosing is done this way because we do not yet know the best dose to use in children and adolescents. Enrollment early in this study patients may receive a lower or higher dose than those who are enrolled later. A higher dose may be more likely to cause side effects. A lower dose may be less likely to have any effect on tumors. ...

Our study aims to follow this effort and to explore the association between health, socioeconomic background, school-related factors, social support and adolescents sense of coherence and educational aspirations among adolescents from different educational tracks and to contribute to the existing body of knowledge on the role of educational aspirations in the social reproduction of health inequalities. We expect that socioeconomic background will contribute to the development of educational aspirations, but this association will be modified by available social and individual resources, which may be particularly favourable for the group of adolescents who are on lower educational tracks, since for them such resources may lead to gaining a higher educational level. We collected data on the socioeconomic background (mothers and fathers education and employment status, doubts about affordability of future study), school-related factors (school atmosphere, school conditions, attitudes towards school),
Little is known concerning obesity patterns of ethnic subpopulations in the U.S. and the effects of acculturation on these patterns. Adolescent obesity, a major public health problem, has important health, social and economic consequences for the adolescent. The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health survey is unique in the size of the adolescent sample and in its ability to provide large representative samples of Anglo, African-American, Hispanic and Asian-American adolescents. A nationally representative sample of 13,783 adolescents was studied. Measurements of weight and height collected in the second wave of the survey were used to study adolescent obesity. Multivariate logit techniques were used to provide an understanding of the ethnic, age, gender and intergenerational patterns of adolescent obesity. Comparisons are presented between the NHANES III results and those from the Adolescent Health Survey. The smoothed version of the NHANES I 85th percentile cut-off was used for the ...
Although some adults may want this to be the standard, it is far from accurate in describing the world of todays teenagers. The reality is that sexual behavior is almost universal among American adolescents. Eighty-five percent of young adults ages 18 to 24 and 56 percent of adolescents ages 15 to 17 report having been with someone in an intimate or sexual way (including but not limited to intercourse).1 In addition, 66 percent of adolescents and young adults ages 15 to 24 report having engaged in oral sex.2. According to data from the 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 48 percent of all high school students and 65 percent of high school seniors report having engaged in sexual intercourse.3 A similar survey of college students found that 80 percent of students 18 to 24 years of age had engaged in sexual intercourse.4 In addition, studies have found that even those young people who remain virgins during their teen years ...
Although there have been a wide range of epidemiological studies examining the impact of patterns of alcohol consumption among adolescents, there remains considerable variability in both defining these patterns and the ability to comprehensively evaluate their relationship to behavioural patterns. This study explores a new procedure for defining and evaluating drinking patterns and integrating well-established indicators. The composite measure is then used to estimate the impact of these patterns on alcohol-related aggressive behaviour among Italian adolescents. Data were collected as part of the 2011 European School Survey Project on Alcohol and other Drugs (ESPAD). A national sample of 14,199 students aged 15-19 years was collected using an anonymous, self-administered questionnaire completed in a classroom setting. Drinking patterns were established using principal component analysis. Alcohol-related aggression was analysed as to its relationship to patterns of drinking, behaviour of friends towards

Behavioural and developmental factors mean that adolescents who initiate sexual intercourse early may be at an increased risk of adverse sexual health outcomes at the time of first sex and later in life. In an Irish context, there is insufficient knowledge about the specific correlates of early sexual initiation. This research explores relationships between contextual socio-demographic, health and lifestyle factors and the timing of first sexual intercourse among 15-17-year-olds in Ireland. Multiple regression analysis was carried out in conjunction with Multiple Imputation using data collected through the 2014 Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children Ireland study on a sample of 879 sexually active adolescents. The socio-demographic and lifestyle factors measured were a stronger predictor of age of sexual initiation among girls than boys. Risk behaviour initiation was significantly related to age of sexual initiation for adolescents, while alcohol use/drunkenness and unhealthy food consumption ...
Background: Adolescence is a period of vulnerability with the onset of multiple risky behaviour which exposes them to HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases and as such, the timely introduction and uptake of strategies like HIV Counselling and Testing will reduce transmission and provide access to preventive services. Objective: To assess the knowledge, attitude and prevalence of HIV Counselling and Testing among secondary in-school adolescents in Orlu Local Government Area, Imo State, Nigeria. Methods: A cross sectional analytical study design was used that selected students aged 13 - 19 years in senior classes SS1 to SS3 attending secondary schools. Data was collected using a pretested, semi-structured questionnaire. Descriptive analyses were done with frequencies and summary statistics. Chi square statistic was computed and p value was set at 0.05 significant level. Results: Though most of the respondents were aware of HIV/AIDS (99%) and HIV Counselling and Testing (92%), the majority of the

Background: In 2012, an estimated 2.1 million adolescents were living with HIV. Though there are effective interventions to prevent and treat HIV infection, adolescents face specific barriers in accessing them. As a result, new infections and poor outcomes among HIV-infected adolescents are common. HIV programming for adolescents should focus on interventions of proven effectiveness and address underlying factors driving incidence and lack of effective treatment and care in this age group. Methods: We conducted a systematic review of systematic reviews to summarize the global data on effectiveness of 20 intervention types, to identify characteristics of effective interventions, and to explore evidence of how adolescents can access interventions with proven effectiveness. Interventions were in 2 broad categories: those designed primarily for adults and those designed specifically for adolescents. Where available, we evaluated the evidence of impact on the key outcomes: HIV risk, HIV transmission, and HIV
Description: This OTAs report responds to the request of numerous Members of Congress to review the physical, emotional, and behavioral health status of contemporary American adolescents, including adolescents in groups who might be more likely to be in special need of health-related interventions: adolescents living in poverty, adolescents from racial and ethnic minority groups, Native American adolescents, and adolescents in rural areas. In addition, OTA was asked to: 1 ) identify risk and protective factors for adolescent health problems and integrate national data in order to understand the clustering of specific adolescent problems, 2) evaluate options in the organization of health services and technologies available to adolescents (including accessibility and financing), 3) assess options in the conduct of national health surveys to improve collection of adolescent health statistics, and 4) identify gaps in research on the health and behavior of adolescents. ...
Parents seeking to better understand adolescent behavior and develop age appropriate parenting strategies also need to consider the physical limitations of the adolescent brain that tend to translate into cognitive and emotional limitations reflected in the behavior of our children. The adolescent brain has reached a state of growth that makes it abound in neural connections. Of these, many nerve fibers continue to grow and to be further covered with myelin (a fatty substance that speeds up neural responsiveness) according to the frequency of their activity, while others are pruned out and eliminated for lack of use. Research shows that this brain growth spurt is not uniform, with the frontal lobe (the part of the brain responsible for judgment, planning and decision-making) developing at a slower rate than the amygdala, a limbic system structure responsible for more primitive and impulsive emotional responses. Knowing this parents may learn to be more forgiving of the stormy daughter that ...

I read your blog regularly and sometimes post. I was very much taken with your post n Transgenderism today. Rod, it is almost ubiquitous throughout high schools today. It is a thing. I know this through personal experience.. About 5 years ago my oldest daughter started school at a rather large public high school in a very conservative school district in [very red state]. She had previously spent her elementary years at a small Catholic School in the same county. The student population grades preK - 8th was about 325 kids. In 2011 she started at the public high school in the Fall. My wife and I had absolutely no clue what was coming at us.. The school year started off as any regular year would, orientation, supply buying, etc. It was not as if my daughter did not know other kids in the school; she did. She had friends from the neighborhood who had spent their lives in public school and many of the kids from her Catholic school had gone to the same school as well. Anyway, as the semester wore on, ...

Our analyses attempted to replicate previous reports suggesting an exposure-dependent relationship between marijuana use and multimodal measures of brain morphology. The analyses we performed duplicated those previously used (Gilman et al., 2014) with several important differences. Our study included more subjects in adult and adolescent samples, and compared extreme groups of non-marijuana users to daily users. Most importantly, the groups were closely matched on an alcohol problem measure (AUDIT) and were not different on many possible confounding variables (e.g., tobacco use, depression, impulsivity, age, and gender). In other words, the present analyses had greater power to detect group differences, while closely controlling for other effects. We found no evidence of differences in volumes of the accumbens, amygdala, hippocampus, or cerebellum between daily versus nonusers, in adults or adolescents. Moreover, effect size data (Tables 2, 3, Fig. 1) suggest that potential effects are modest ...
This study provides evidence regarding the relatedness of multi-informant agreement and perceived observability of internalizing and externalizing problem behaviors. Based on 2 distinct but comparable samples of children/adolescents (Sample 1: 58.2% female and mean age of 12.51 years; Sample 2: 56.4% female and mean age of 12.35 years) and their mothers, cross-sectional as well as longitudinal analyses were conducted. Although often suggested in the literature, the results of the study do not indicate that-in general-internalizing behavior is less observable than externalizing behavior. Moreover, the results do not corroborate the suggestion that multi-informant agreement regarding internalizing behavior is lower than that of externalizing behavior. However, apart from the broad distinction of internalizing versus externalizing behavior, observability and multi-informant agreement are positively correlated with respect to reports on actual state (cross-sectional) as well as change (longitudinal) ...

I never said government should get out of education. My view is that if people exercise their choice to put their children into private school then that is their business. I didnt do so with vouchers or tax credits and I dont think I would favor that system personally. I do think that public schools are going for a crap, but not because of teachers directly, but more because of the behavior of students and parents that condone or encourage a lack of discipline. I have first hand evidence of why my choice paid off in my children, and then my children and I got to make a direct comparison once they entered public high school. The public high school is a joke in comparison and the behavior of some of the students is appalling ...
It is well-known that social influences affect consumption decisions. We used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to elucidate the neural mechanisms associated with social influence with regard to a common consumer good: music. Our study population was adolescents, age 12-17. Music is a common purchase in this age group, and it is widely believed that adolescent behavior is influenced by perceptions of popularity in their reference group. Using 15-s clips of songs from MySpace.com, we obtained behavioral measures of preferences and neurobiological responses to the songs. The data were gathered with, and without, the overall popularity of the song revealed. Song popularity had a significant effect on the participants likability ratings of the songs. fMRI results showed a strong correlation between the participants rating and activity in the caudate nucleus, a region previously implicated in reward-driven actions. The tendency to change ones evaluation of a song was positively ...
However, if there is not a good balance of these three components the individual will act out irrationally and impulsively with the inability of knowing that what he, or she is doing is wrong and that is where crimes may be committed. With the Psychodynamic theory it is not true for all adolescents behaviors there may be adolescents out there that have the off balance necessary to support the Psychodynamic theory and then there are those adolescents all around the world that do not contain the off balance of the three components at the same age and life situations (, 2005).. With the Behavioral Theory psychologists whom specialize in Behavioral Therapy debate that an individuals mind set is learned throughout life situations and relationships with peers. Behavioral studies suggest that people acquire knowledge from watching how people at whom he, or she is interacting with behave in accordance to what he, or she is conducting his, or her-self. It has also been well-known in case studies that an ...
What do we think will happen when school discipline is raised to the level of law enforcement?. Very recently, I read a Star Ledger Guest Column by Rev. Charles Boyer from Woodbury and Rev. Timothy Adkins-Jones from Newark, discussing the disparities that exist between the ways children of color are dealt with as it relates to school discipline in comparison to white children. Their point was that adolescent behavior thats often handled with in-school detention often becomes criminalized behavior when it involves black and Hispanic students.. In their piece, the pastors provided a startling statistic that in New Jersey, a black child is 30 times more likely to be committed to a youth facility than a white child even though they commit offenses at roughly the same rate. The focus was on youth incarceration, mostly teens, but I wanted to pick up the threads a little earlier because I suspect that is where it starts. As for prejudice, Im not naïve and I know that in all people, no matter what ...
