Growing Up Isn’t Easy

The problems of American society and the daily stress of modern life have had a significant effect on our
nation’s youth as they go through their tumultuous teenage years. In your exercises for this week, you watched
“The Top 10 Issues Facing Our Youth Today” hosted by TopTenz. From your reading, your top 10 issues, and
the video, write a post responding to the following questions.

  1. Describe one of the issues addressed in the video (or one from the list you developed).
  2. How does this issue cause stress that can, potentially, lead to future victimization or criminal behavior?
  3. Describe ego identity and role diffusion? Does the stressor you chose relate to ego identity and role
    diffusion? Why or why not?
  4. Imagine you are the parent, describe how you could help to minimize this issue for your teenager. Use APA
    Style for proper citations and references.
