giving out free condoms at school is encouraging as well as promoting safe sex it should not be seen as an influence but for safety

This is very sad that so many teens under the age of 18 abuse alcohol so much. At this day and age they do not realise the true effects alcohol has on them and that by making a stupid mistake at this age by the abuse of alcohol effects their whole life and so many regrets come in later on. Regrets such as disabilities, depression, the harm of another person, addiction etc.

College Football Star Michael Sam Says He Is Gay; May Become First Publicly Gay Player in N.F.L.

College Football Star Michael Sam Says He Is Gay; May Become First Publicly Gay Player in N.F.L. | Teen binge drinking | Scoop.it

Coaches at the University of Missouri divided players into small groups at a preseason football practice last year for a team-building exercise. One by one, players were asked to talk about themselves — where they grew up, why they chose Missouri and what others might not know about them.

 

As Michael Sam, a defensive lineman, began to speak, he balled up a piece of paper in his hands. “I’m gay,” he said. With that, Mr. Sam set himself on a path to become the first publicly gay player in the National Football League.

 

“I looked in their eyes, and they just started shaking their heads — like, finally, he came out,” Mr. Sam said Sunday in an interview with The New York Times, the first time he spoke publicly about his sexual orientation.

This shows different points of view on the same topic but only shows one side of the story and it needs to go more in depth on why

Cheyenne Hernandez's curator insight, March 23, 2016 8:56 PM

Teenage drinking is known to be a huge problem. As stated in the video, most young drinkers become addicted at a young age, and only do it becuase they think it will make them look cool. Nobody is forcing anyone to drink, it is a choice that young teens make themselves. To take the risk, is their choice. Nobody can force them to stop. 

 

In my opinion, young drinking isn't even worth the time. Taking the risk of getting addicted too early, and possibly getting caught, isn't worth it at all. We're young, we all have a lot going for us. By drinking and wanting to fit in with everyone else, just makes you look much worse. Do what you know is the right thing to do, not what others are expecting you to do. Speak up and have your own voice.
