this article is really sad :( but i think it really gets to people.
this is like what we were studying in class a few weeks ago peer pressure and knowing when to stop aswell as staying with friends. in this situation her friends tried to do what they thought was best but probably should of called for help i think calling an ambulance or parents is the safest way
i think that it is good that her mother is knowing awarding other people and trying to save people from what happened to her daughter

this article is about how there is no safe amount of alcohol when your a teen and it also says that the drinking age may became higher. this may be because teenagers who drink even small amounts of alcohol have a much higher risk of developing alcohol abuse or risky sexual behaviour as they become older.

this article is about underage drinking and the underage drinking rates that are alarming the government. in this article it said that Australia's underage drinkers consume more than 175 million drinks a year. which i find very impressive and i did not think it would be that high. so i think it is good that we are learning about why not drink and safe ways t drink so that underage drinking will start to occur less- maudie skyring

i think this is a very good articles as lots of girls would go through this issue. i think peer pressure would be why lots of people end up having sex at a young age either because there boyfriend whats them to or the are getting bagged out for still being a virgin this article would help a lot as it tells you about what peer pressure is, how to not give in to peer pressure and helps you understand about making the right decision.

The article says that if parents reduce the amount that they drink at home, their children will be less likely to binge drink.
This relates to what we learnt in class about the influence that other people can have on us mostly parents and friends, with things like alcohol and sex

this is article is about binge drinking and that it harms the brain but specifically teen girls brains, including less activity in brain regions i think this article would be useful to our class and other teen girls as it tells us that we need to be careful when drinking as we are the most vulnerable to the effects

this article is about how teen pregnancy rates are no longer as high as use of contraceptives. this means teens are being taught the need for contraception when pregnancy is unwanted. i think this article is good as it shows we are getting a greeter knowledge on contraceptives and hopefully the rate of unwanted pregnancies will get lower (from the the help of mrs Sullivan)
