Streaming Video - 2008
Rate this:
Teenagers are running away from home, dropping out of school, having babies, taking drugs, committing suicide, and going to jail for violent crimes. This program discusses normal adolescence and today's too-frequent scenarios: a juvenile delinquent whose drug use led him to criminality; an eighth-grader whose drug use completely altered his personality; a young girl who became severely depressed because of work, school, and familial pressure; a teenage rape victim who ran away from home, attempted suicide, and became addicted to drugs. The program presents a five-question quiz to help others determine whether a child is in need of help; discusses how society is attempting to deal with troubled kids by means of the school and the legal systems; and offers an inside look at a group therapy session, where parents and kids tell emotion-packed stories of their struggles.
