This article is about alcohol and relates to the topic we did in class about decision-making and the effects of taking drugs and alcohol.
"Around 90 per cent of Australian teenagers over the age of 14 years have tried alcohol at least once. Estimates suggest that around half of teenagers over 14 years drink alcohol at least weekly."
This article had some very good information in it about how drinking alcohol irresponsibly or underage can lead to things such as
Binge drinking or drinking too much on a single occasionDrink drivingUnsafe sexImpaired brain developmentInjury or death.
All teenagers should be aware of the effects and long term damage underage drinking can have, and this article provides it. Towards the bottom it also shows a list of numbers on where you can get help, which can be helpful to teens that need it but don’t know where to get it, or if they feel they can't go to their parents.
This short video is about how the media portrays body image and how we see it. Studies show that looking at fashion magazines for just three minutes lowers the self-esteem of over 80% of women.
I thought this video was relevant to our topics because it shows how unrealistic society’s idea of beauty and body image really is.
I also really liked the quote at the end "Talk to your daughter before the beauty industry does because its telling parents to be mindful on how todays society can take a girls perception of beauty and change it within minutes of just simply viewing a few tv commercials or magazine ads.
There is no cure for AIDS, which is why prevention is so important. Get the facts on HIV/AIDS, as well as how it affects the body and is treated, in this article.
Holly Morgan's insight:
"Thousands of U.S. teens and young adults get infected with HIV each year." Although this quote talks about teenagers in the U.S it much relates to every teen around the world and just how easy it is to get HIV and AIDS and how it can affect you.
This article talks about anything and everything to do with HIV and AIDS, it answers questions about the disease and explains how to prevent getting it and what the symptoms are and how serious it really is.
I like this article because it gives a lot of great detailed information about this disease and gives awareness about the importance of preventing it.
This is a good article because it gives awareness about the use of the pill and how it is more effective against pregnancy but is not effective against STI's, I also like it because it gives good detailed information on contraception that teenagers can use. This relates to the topic we have been doing because it explains the use of contraception and it promotes sex in a healthy way.
One in three young people say that body image is their top concern (Mission Australia 2008), and less than a quarter of Australian girls and a third of Australian boys are satisfied with their weight (Paxton.S.J. 2002, No.6 Body Image Research Overview).
As well as posting a video on body image i thought this was a really good article as well because it has alot more information on body image, eating disorders, sexuality and the media.
The other thing that i also liked about this article was the list of tips it gives about body image and to not let the media change how you feel about yourself.
