Boy, 13, Rapes Classmate After Sex-Ed Class - Breitbart News

Boy, 13, Rapes Classmate After Sex-Ed Class - Breitbart News | Erin's yr 9 journal | Scoop.it
A Welsh council is reviewing its policies on sex education after a 13 year-old girl was pinned-down and raped by her classmate on school property after taking a sex-ed lesson together.
Erin Golding's insight:

This is an interesting article because it is such a rare and odd thing to read about. It is very disturbing to read that a 13 year old boy would rape a classmate, after a sex ed class as well! It highlights that maybe the teacher didn't explain in depth the consequences of sex, or maybe she put bad thoughts or ideas in their heads.

 

I think this article is important for teenagers to read to highlight and raise awareness about the importance of a proper sex-ed class.

Don't Rush - Take The Slow Down Pledge - Dr Owler

Visit http://www.facebook.com/slowdownpledge/app_271316899641599 and Take the Slow Down Pledge.
Erin Golding's insight:

This ad is very effective in sending the message of how important road safety is. It connects to the viewers by asking them questions that result in shocking scenarios. The shocking images that are put into your head are a strong reminder of the pain that speeding and irresponsible road safety can cause to both yourself and family.

Charli Morelli's curator insight, November 25, 2014 9:57 PM

This ad is trying to send a message across to the audience on how important road safety is. he tells the viewers common scenarios, this ad allows the audience to create their own image and put themselves or people they know in that same situation. Passengers are also effected by this ad it puts them in a situation that could be fatal to everyone in the car including them. this ad is reliable because i is an ad from the government and they have a 'doctor' speaking.

Erin Golding's insight:

Just because your gay or lesbian doesn't mean your not normal. So why is binge drinking high among these people. Sadly gay and lesbian people are being stressed into binge drinking. Its not fair for them to basically be pressured into binge drinking.

MEDFORD TWP. — Nine teenagers were charged early Saturday morning with underage drinking at a large party. Police received an anonymous call a little after 1 a.m.

Erin Golding's insight:

Its disappointing to know that teenagers are not being responsible with alcohol and drinking at unsupervised parties. Teachers and parents need to educate these teenagers about the consequences of underage drinking.

Erin Golding's insight:

Teenagers see their favourite singer as role models, but these artist aren't very good at it. A lot of their songs include references too underage drinking and how much fun it is. As the article points out in their survey is that music influenced binge drinking is just as strong as peer and parental pressure.

The "Project Citizen" program run by the South Carolina Bar Association is a state competition in which students address a problem in their community.
Erin Golding's insight:

I think that it is amazing that children are standing up for the better of young adults and teenagers. To help them pick the right decision because they can't always decide themselves. Hopefully the raise of underage drinking fines will make people stop and think first.

Erin Golding's insight:

It is good that the Australian government has posted a webpage on how to party safely. Teenagers and even young adults need to be aware of these things so that they don't harm or embarrass themselves. It is up to the individual how much they drink and they need to be aware what there limits are.

Federal Study Confirms Contraception-Breast Cancer Link

Ten years ago, Dr. Chris Kahlenborn, authored the book Breast Cancer: Its Link to Abortion and the Birth Control Pill, which established ...
Erin Golding's insight:

Even though teenagers and young adults are urged to use contraceptive methods maybe its not that safe. Ten years ago Dr Chris Kahlenborn believed that there was a connection between the pill and breast cancer. It has now been officially approved. So should contraceptive pills still be sold if they are causing breast cancer? I think so but it should be up to the person if they chose to buy it or not.

Erin Golding's insight:

Yet again more teenagers being irresponsible with alcohol. Teenage drinking is getting way out of hand. If teachers and parents don't start educating people of the consequences then we will never be able to keep this under control. Its also surprising that teenagers are getting hold of alcohol. This leads to conclusion that either parents or alcohol shops are giving alcohol to underage people.

Erin Golding's insight:

Given these astounding statistics teenagers are still going out multiple nights a week and drinking way too much. Teens need to be educated about stats like these so that they can prevent them and understand the consequences of drinking too much.

Underage drinking a problem at ASU?

FromTempe police increase patrol after student falls to her death after drinking too much.

Erin Golding's insight:

I believe that young adults need to watch this video and see what terrible things can happen to those who don't drink responsibly. They have to learn to choose the right decision on their own.  For those teenagers who drink under age, they need to stop and think and pick the right decision with the help of the right friends and family.
