Why Younger And Younger Girls Are Binge Drinking

Why Younger And Younger Girls Are Binge Drinking | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Wild high school parties and binge drinking have long been the stuff of teen movies. But a new documentary, "Faded: Girls & Binge Drinking," paints a different, and less glorified, picture of underage drinking.

Ailish Manners's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:31 AM

It's sad to think that a young girl had died from binge drinking. But this is showing how bad it is. Now they are starting to say that young girls are getting binge drinking from hollywood movies and their trying to figure out what came first the drinking sense in the movie or just young girls drinking. From my point of view I think that it is both, young girls watching the movies and saying yeah this is fine lets do what their doing and we might become famous or something like that. And then you have where the young girls see older girls do it and think oh I wanna be like them and do them sort of things. So really I think it comes from both ways.

Sotiris Haris's curator insight, June 23, 2015 6:46 AM

This article provides an insight of how dangerous and serious binge drinking is for young ages. It explores ideas of how binge drinking can orginate from and the consequences of the choice of drinking excessively. These ideas are further emphasised by accounts retold by victims/experienced teenagers. Chosen due to it relation to our class lessons which conducted of the learning of binge drinking, and how it can affect our lives and the choices it can make us choose. Strongly agreeing with the article that binge drinking should be taken seriously and that teenagers should be aware of the consequences of drinking excessively. Teenagers should be prepared for the night and know when to stop. Especially when this article targets young girls into being pressured to fit in by binge drinking.

It's scary that places like this exist, and that there are people who are so lost in this self-destructive behavior.  But this local accommodation to the endless desire for drugs on the part of some does seem to be reducing violent crime.  It seems to be something along the line of Amsterdam's governmental established drug parks as part of what they call "harm reduction."  -Lon

A little over two years ago, my eldest daughter commenced her Secondary School education. And what an education it's been - in more ways than one!  You may recall her big wide eyes as she regaled stories of "boys using the 'f' word in the corridor" and people no longer holding doors open for one another.  At 11 years old, she was probably rather naive by most people's standards, but she was incredibly innocent, something that I cherished.

Not surprising but still needs more exploration by authentic leaders, the key is that one can overpower the tendency to quelsh empathy in their roles. But it is not easy nor is it often truly understood.

Chris Brown's curator insight, October 2, 2013 6:05 PM

"Whether you're with a team at work [or] your family dinner, all of that hinges on how we adapt our behaviors to the behaviors of other people, and power takes a bite out of that ability, which is too bad."

 

A powerful statement.  How can we keep focused on connecting to others so we don't become less empathetic?
