About This Episode
We chose the topic of teen to parent relationships to focus on because we wanted to show how important teens and parents’ relationships really are. We wanted to show that parents’ roles in teens’ lives are necessary in order for teens to graduate from high school and become successful individuals. According to the statistics that we researched, teens without parents are twice as likely to drop out of school, become drug addicts or engage in sexual activity at an early age. Children who die from abuse or neglect or poverty are usually parentless. We want our peers to know that it is important to have a good relationship with their parents. We used statistics and individual interviews of teens that have distinguished relationships with their parents. The interviewees weren’t afraid to show their true emotions, which helped get the message across. Although the students were sensitive towards the topic, they were still willing to be openly honest and show true emotion because they know the importance of the issue as we do. We want others to see that the relationship between a parent and a teen is important because it influences us on whether we will be come strong individuals in the future and be successful or not. We want others to make an effort on improving their relationship between either their parents, or their own kids. We learned that every student responded differently, yet they still felt it was a strong topic. We also learned some interesting stories about our peers.
