This article is about body image and the ways teens think of themselves when it comes to it. How teenagers use and think of body image to fit in a particular group, or teens wanting to become like Hollywood stars and models. It also talks to parents about how their children could be thinking. It says that unhealthy body image can lead to depression. I think that this article is great as it raises the awareness about how important body image is for teenagers and to be more careful of what they eat and the amount of the exercise they participate in.

This article talks about the result of their survey on what 12,000 Australian teenagers eat. They have discovered that only 14% were eating a balanced diet, which means 86% are not. This article talks about how in the future the teenagers will all lose their lives after a heart attack by the age 40. They alert the parents and teenagers about how important it is to change their habits now before it is too late and therefore I think this site is very effective.

This website has three articles and they are about the stories of people's lives. They talk about the mistakes they had made in the past about having sex and getting pregnant or getting their partner pregnant. This is very useful for teenagers as they can learn about how they might regret doing something like the people from the articles. They can read and learn about the experiences and how they could go through those hard times just like those three people. I guess it just raises awareness to teenagers about how hard it is to be pregnant as a teenager and the guys as well, even if they don't feel the pain like girls do they will still feel different and sometimes they might think it's their fault.

This article isn't about Australian teenagers but I still wanted to talk about it as it was very surprising to me. This article talks about a school having pregnancy check as a part of the female students' timetable. It was just unbelievable, when I read this I told myself "There must be countless number of pregnant teenagers to have pregnancy check as apart of your timetable!". I know this is happening in another country but what makes anyone think that it will never happen here? It tells teenagers and parents how so many teenagers all over the world are having risky sex and getting pregnant. I think this is a warning to Australia to be more careful and protective and think wisely about their decisions.

Fewer young people are giving birth now than in the 1970s. This is most likely because of improvements in sex education, availability of contraception and access to abortion.

This article talks about how fewer teenagers are getting pregnant now compared to what it was back in the 1970s because of the improvements in sex education, availability of contraception and access to abortion. It also talks about how a quarter of year 10s and just over half of year 12s have had sex. In my opinion this article if very helpful as it alerts the parents and teachers about what teenagers, children and students are doing and allowing them to realize that they need to be more protective and teach them how to make the right decisions.

I think this article is great as it allows people to see how surprising life can be and that we need to be careful and re-think our decisions for every move we make.
