The trouble that teenagers can get into is almost limitless, and the consequences can impact the rest of their lives. One of the most common consequences of negative teen behavior is quitting school. Except for trouble with the law and substance abuse issues, the most serious problem is dropping out of school or being expelled permanently. Teenage girls who are heading into trouble often do not see school as a stepping stone into a secure future. With their tendency to live totally in the present, many adolescents have difficulties realizing that their current behavior is affecting the rest of their lives. Because, an adult without a high school degree lives in an unsafe and unkind world where incomes are meager and supplemented with drug sales or petty theft, making the “American dream” completely out of reach.
Alcohol or drug use is one of the most important signs that your child is heading into serious trouble. Although its true that most teenagers want to keep some parts of their life private, the drug using teenager can appear much less honest or forthcoming than they previously had been.
