Teenagers today seemed to believe that parents can’t know the answer to anything. I ponder this as I write about Elizabeth who is a teenager who did turn to her parents for answers to questions she had no answer for. One thing Elizabeth did struggle with was expressing the pain she had with holding back her physical desires to be with her boyfriend. Secrets between her and her boyfriend served as a bond that brought more of a barrier between her parents and her. I wonder how many girls and boys keep those secrets from there parents?

Why questions...

How do teenagers value themselves? Who do they turn to for support and love? How many young girls think that a boyfriend is the answer to their problems? Does the color of a teenager’s hair, eyes or body shape influence their popularity at school?
