Of course we all see on T.V. shows they have a bunch of kids at a party where their is beer,drugs, kids making out in a corner, all that kind of stuff. And some end up raped or they die from a overdose. That one time they think it's okay to see what Meth is like, and bam they die right on the spot.Now what you may or may not see everyday is the real life teen parties. Even when your in middle school you have those kids who like to be wild and start trouble. Some even start smoking as early as 6th grade to ''look cool'' I've hear stories about those kids, and it really shocked me since I'd never expect that. I mean they aren't even ''teens'' yet and they are already starting to ruin their whole lives.That carries on, and uh oh they now have a bad reputation. Their grades might drop and parents might start to get suspicious. School starts to call about their behavior, now some parents might search their room to find something. And if they do? Well they could end in some rehab place, but do you think they'll change? Or go back to the same place they started. But what about those kids who parents don't care? Is it a different story? Do they just do it, because they feel like there is no one there to help them out? maybe they feel their peers are the only people that actually care? They go on to high school and it get's worse. Now they're at a party about every night drinking until they pass out and trying all kinds of drugs. But what about their story? Their childhood? Does this affect our choices? If you saw someone laying on the ground mumbling themselves, their words slurring an you can tell they've had way too many would you automatically say to yourself ''well they put it on themselves?'' I personally believe that it's is their choice, no matter what their life is like, since we know right from wrong. I want to hear what you think about this. I think that it's been a issue that has grown a lot in schools all around. It's sad that these kids throw their-selves away like that. So voice your opinion and let your story shine.
I think its peer pressure you know , one rotten apple , many rotten apples and if you dont join the rotten then you become one of the" uncool losers "or something . thats whats its for drugs and smokin and stuff . or maybe because they like someone and they want to hang out with them , so do evrything they do . Stopping to think whether other people care or not is the answer! for these problems
I'll tell you the truth that cameras would never tell you. Most of the kids that do start very early are usually the kids that have low self esteem to start off with because of a missing parent, abusive lifestyles, trama, and so on the list is endless. The reason why they do it is because its a different thing than they have ever seen and its new and exciting for them so they want that "I'll try it once experience" and most end up thinking "wow the experience was more mind blowing than I expected" so they look for the next thing to top that because of the thrill it gave them, like a roller coaster they want a higher and higher peak but with that comes a down too.
I've seen a person who went through a abusive dad who got beat over and over and never knew what they did wrong or why so they always thought they were the problem and this ends up leading to a disaster in the motion... most of these youths just need much love and attention because they never had it before and most are not willing and won't ever. By the time they are older its much too late its been imprinted in their brain so to speak.
People makes choices and bad and good happen its not always one way, people need change but don't know how.

thanks guys for the responses and stating what you think. I liked how you Violent said ''people need change but don't know how'' and that an be true if someone is wrapped up in a drug addition then maybe they want to change, but it's so hard for them and they are trying their hardest.
and yes people should care less and focus on what's good for them Sarentai. so thanks again to both of you guys.
yup, yup, so true..i never experience peer pressure or anything like that b4, bt i know its all about low self esteem, depression, peer pressure and many more. I hate when i see movies based on these things it is really heart breaking. That is one of the reason y i dnt party, i dnt want to see a person dead on front of me, or drunk any sign that i know someone has done more damage to themselves. In order to stop this is by loving or seeing a psychiatrist, someone to reach to ur level and pull u out from the darkness.
Don't trust anyone but close friends and family, psychiatrists usually don't know how to solve the problem unless they are a specialist in what they do most of the time they are just general knowledge. I went in with depression and I got fed pills that did worse damage than I ever did.
By the way death by midnight I tell you because I know.
Anywho, Violent is right. Most kids do it due to some life changing events in their lives that they really don't know how to handle. I started smoking cigarettes at 12 years old. Not because I wanted to look cool. I just wanted to change who I was to "counter" the changes in my life that I was dealing with. I learned at around eight years old that my dad wasn't my biological father, so when you feel like you've been decieved by your parents, why should you listen to them, right? That was my outlook anyway. That led to smoking pot, which led to parties and drinking at 15/16 years old, to doing harder drugs when I was 18 or 19 years of age. Other events in my life took place that enabled me to carry on those actions as well. My mother remarrying to some ass-hat that thought he could mentally abuse me and put me out my home, and other family conflicts helped my "bad" attitude.
Anyway, my point is that my teenage/young adult partying wasn't something that would change who I was on the inside and it didn't make me unproductive or less of a contribution to society. Did things carry on they way they did for years? Yeah. But, just as it takes a life changing event to start you on that path, it took one to pull me out of it as well. When I was put between a rock and a hard place, I realized that I can't live my life like I'm still in high school and sobered up. Not everybody stays in active addiction and TV shows and music videos show a horrible example of how people end up living those lives. I'm TONS better than I was a year ago and doing things I never thought I'd be doing now.
I don't regret a single moment of my past. Had I not lived the life I live, I wouldn't know what I know now. Granted, there is a bit of concern about kids and drugs/alcohol lingering in my head, I believe that most will learn soon enough that it's not okay. It's just something nobody can teach them. Leave that up to experience. *sorry if i rambled and failed to make any sense*
I do not approve of teen parties, I like how Chef from South Park put it: "There's a time and place for everything, and it's called College."
I grew up in an environment and group of friends where partying (drugs, alcohol, casual sex) was not a norm, and I'm thankful for that. I could've just as easily been with friends that did that kinda thing and get sucked into it, and be no where near where I am right now. atomik and violence are absolutely right, the friends I do have that have done that kinda thing, usually had problems at home; deadbeat parents or single mom are the most common. I've had a couple parties at my place where some high schoolers tried to sneak in, and we kicked their asses out.
I'm not against partying by any means, I think everyone should have that stage in their life, because it is fun, it gives you great perspective, and by the time it's out of your system you can go on in life with true wisdom. All the fun and mistakes you make are valuable, and will give you real insight if you ever have kids who will, most likely, be faced with the same temptations you faced at that age.
Some people never grow out of it though, which is sad, but that's how life goes. You live by the choices you make.
