    “stupid is as stupid does”

    Nothing else NEEDS to be said… just watch the video!

    Have you ever wondered what other people think of the way you look? I mean what they really think of the way you look? According to Amy Graff of the San Francisco Chronicle blog, a rising number of teens are posting videos on YouTube to find out.

    The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    If you head over to YouTube and do a search for “Am I ugly?” or “Am I pretty?” you’ll find yourself face to face with a surprisingly large number of videos of tweens and teens (mostly girls) asking the YouTube community for an honest assessment of their appearance.

    In our weekly updates we are going to cover a lot of subjects just like this one, especially for parents to gain a better understanding of “What Our Kids” have to deal with daily here in the USA and as this article shows, all around the world…

    Why do so many young teens get involved in sex/smoking/etc. nowadays?

    GOOD Question!!

    This was asked by a 13 year old, in the UK… WOW!

    So, I am a 13 year old girl and I know girls/guys in my year who smoke, drink and go around having sex with people. I also know a girl who has a tongue and belly button piercing (All these people are only 13, the same age as me and I don’t do any of these things, I hardly even curse/swear) I think it’s disgusting! I mean, think about it, only 13 years of living and your already getting involved in all of that?

    Smoking Now & Then

    I bet 40 years ago 13 year olds didn’t even know what sex meant. And also, do guys like “good-girls”? Because I pay attention in lessons and enjoy learning unlike others who swear and shout at the teacher, which I think is disgracefully rude and makes me embarrassed to be part of my generation.   Read the rest, plus a great answer to the question!
