Teens and Electronic Devices Pew Research Center recently released a study that showed teen electronic device use is growing (and I don't see any decline in the future).A phone in today's terms isn't what a phone was a decade ago.According to the 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, approximately 10 percent of adolescents nationwide reported being the victim of physical violence at the hands of a romantic partner during the previous year. The rate of psychological victimization is even higher: Between two and three in 10 reported being verbally or psychologically abused in the previous year, according to the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health. As for perpetration rates, there are currently no nationwide estimates for who does the abusing, and state estimates vary significantly.In South Carolina, for example, nearly 8 percent of adolescents reported being physically violent to a romantic partner.In 1997, approximately 48 percent of American teenagers of high-school age were or had been sexually active.The problems associated with teen sexual activity are well-known.Prime example, my school age daughter spoke with my husband on the phone the other day and came to me with a message: looking very puzzled she said, "Mom, dad said give him a ring???
The paper also addresses the unique obstacles teens face when seeking help and/or deciding to end an abusive relationship.
Consequently, those in the field have to rely on an framework to examine the problem of teen dating violence.
However, we find that this adult framework does not take into account key differences between adolescent and adult romantic relationships.
This is not an indication of a security issue such as a virus or attack.
It could be something as simple as a run away script or learning how to better use E-utilities, for more efficient work such that your work does not impact the ability of other researchers to also use our site.
