Teenage Relationships and Study Habits of High School Students
Review of Related Literature Conceptual Literature Teenagers Adolescence is a transitional stage of physical and mental human development that occurs between childhood and adulthood. This transition involves biological (i. e. pubertal), social, and psychological changes, though the biological or physiological ones are the easiest to measure objectively. Historically, puberty has been heavily associated with teenagers and the onset of adolescent development. In recent years, however, the start of puberty has seen an increase in preadolescence and extension beyond the teenage years, making adolescence less simple to discern.
A teenager is a person between the ages of 13 and 19. For girls, puberty typically occurs between ages 12 and 13, while for boys it occurs between ages 14 and 15. It is one of the fastest growth periods of a person’s life. During this time, physical changes affect the body’s nutritional needs, while changes in ones lifestyle may affect eating habits and food choices. Relationships Relationships cover a wide range of people including work colleagues, tutors, friends, family, sexual relationships, living together and marriage. They apply equally to heterosexual, gay, lesbian or bi-sexual people.
Good relationships can be very supportive and enhance our lives. However most relationships go through difficult patches and need the willingness to compromise. Relationship difficulties can produce or stir up feelings that may be from the past – hurt, anger, hopelessness, worthlessness, etc. This can be quite frightening and may make you irritable or withdrawn. Teenage Relationships Teenage relationships are common in today’s world. Adolescence is the most important stage for youngsters to make their future colorful and to become responsible citizens in society.
It is also an age where most teens are attracted to various relationships. Most people consider the word ‘relationship’ as love or sexual relationship. But a relationship simply means any connection between two or more elements, such as human beings. During the teenage years, the youth does not have a firm understanding of the role of dating. To teenagers, dating only consists of someone the feel attached to, spend time with, and/or a personified experiment. The teens may have curiosity in the emotions and tasks involved in a “relationship”.
The lack of understanding of what a true relationship consists of is why the teenagers these days are so distorted. Dating’s purpose is to first step into marriage… that is its sole purpose. Teenagers do not, and should not be thinking about marriage. This is why the teens develop a pointless definition of a relationship, because too few times do these meaningless relationship lead to anything other than sexual curiosity. Study Habits Study habits are the ways that you study – the habits that you have formed during your school years. Study habits can be good ones, or bad ones.
Good study habits include being organized, keeping good notes, reading your textbook, listening in class, and working every day. Bad study habits include skipping class, not doing your work, watching TV or playing video games instead of studying, and losing your work. It means you are not distracted by anything. You have a certain place to go where it is quiet everyday where you study and do homework. Basically it means that you are doing the best you can to get the grades you want. The manner with which you consistently use to study for school or college or even for next day lesson plans if you’re a teacher.
