FCS2. 24. 9/FY8. 50: Teens and Sexual Harassment: Making a Difference. Kate Fogarty. 2This publication is one in a series of discussions on understanding teen sexuality. Introduction. As parents, educators, and volunteers who work with youth, we probably think that today's youth live in a complex world—one that may prove to be more challenging than when we were teenagers.
Teens may be especially confused and misinformed by media- based myths about sexuality and sex role behaviors. It is not uncommon to see images of sexual behavior on TV shows that teens prefer and hear explicit sexual lyrics in the songs teens listen to. Examples include. TV sitcoms or dramas in which teens or adults have sex to get to know each other better, but in the next season (or episode) are sleeping with someone new; music videos with explicit lyrics and imagery; detailed media coverage of celebrity sexual transgressions (adultery) and crimes (murder, rape, abductions, or drug induced sexual conduct).
Beyond the media, teens can learn unhealthy or unrealistic ideas about sexuality from their peers. We can see the effects a sexually charged culture has on the daily lives of adolescents. Sex as portrayed in the media translates into clothing styles as well as behaviors (teens are likely to learn how to behave on a first date from the media). The media's exaggeration of early teen's sex roles create a huge divide between young men and women in how they dress and act towards one another. Teen females may wear tight clothes that emphasize curves, wear heavy makeup, and show more skin than males do in their daily wear.
Sexual messages and behavior teens witness affect their lives more than most adults care to realize. Advocates for positive youth development have worked to expose and transform the sexual toxicity of our popular culture—one that can potentially poison our youth if we do not teach them a healthy view of sexuality (Garbarino, 2. For more information on this topic see the EDIS publication Communicating with teens about sex: Facts, Findings, and Suggestions FY8. FCS2. 25. 1). Sexual Harassment: Defined. One of the unfortunate offshoots of our culture's obsession with sex is problems with sexual harassment. Sexual harassment harms the sexual integrity of teens in their peer relationships.
A definition of sexual harassment is unwelcome attention of a sexual nature, occurring through verbal and/or physical interaction. Being a victim of sexual harassment is likely to affect a teen's academic performance or work ability and may create a hostile or threatening atmosphere for the teen (Hansen & Mallory, 2. In fact, sexual harassment coming from one teen to another is a type of bullying (Pellegrini, 2. Sexual harassment of teens can occur anywhere—in middle and high schools (Lee, Croninger, Linn & Chen, 1. Fineran, 2. 00. 2; Fineran & Gruber, 2. Sexual harassment happens not just between the sexes, but also among girls or just boys (Petersen & Hyde, 2. Female to male or male to female sexual harassment tends to get worse between 6th and 8th grade, a span of time when teens' bodies begin to appear more sexually mature (Petersen & Hyde, 2.
To help define the problem, here are some examples of sexual harassment that teens may be likely to see or experience: continually asking someone out when they have communicated a lack of interest unwanted requests for social or sexual activity making sexual jokes, gestures, or remarks inappropriate touching (brushing up against, grabbing, patting, or pinching in a sexual manner) spreading sexual rumors about someone making comments about a person's body, clothing, sexual orientation, or sexual behavior intimidation (blocking or cornering someone in a sexual way) or assault (pulling clothing off or down, forcing someone to do something sexual such as kissing) inappropriate sexual remarks or questions in "cyberspace" (instant messaging, e- mail, chat rooms) (Hansen & Mallory, 2. Lee, Croninger, Linn & Chen, 1. Mc. Master, Connolly, Pepler & Craig, 2. Sexual Harassment at School. Most adults may think that such incidents are rare in the lives of adolescents they work with or even with their own children because they have not seen it happen. Yet when sexual harassment occurs in school, it usually takes place in public, often in front of school staff and teachers.
A national study of preteens and teens in public schools showed that about four- fifths (8. Lee et al., 1. 99. Petersen & Hyde, 2. A larger study of nearly 2,0.
Chiodo, Wolfe, Crooks, Hughes & Jaffe, 2. Adding insult to injury, preteens and teens who experienced harassment were more likely to have responded by giving unwanted sexual attention to others. Also, 4. 0% percent of the students who reported being a victim to sexual harassment responded by being absent from school or skipping classes (Pellegrini, 2.
In a recent study, common types of in- school sexual harassment were reported (by over 2. Petersen & Hyde, 2.
CDC Recommended Vaccine Schedule: 1. As of late, we've heard several (well intentioned) grandparents use the following argument in favor of blindly vaccinating with any and all injections available in the United States, "Well, you had all your vaccinations when you were born and you are just fine.. Why not give them all to your baby?!"The following chart highlights just one of the reasons that this argument is not logical.
Vaccines (and the quantities in which they are given) in the U. S. are dramatically different today than they were 4. When it comes to vaccines: Be informed.
Know each individual vaccine and the disease it is correlated with. Know your individual child's risk factor both for getting the disease (and/or actually being harmed by it) and the likelihood of adverse effects due to over- vaccination. Know how natural, life- long immunity is built in the body, and how it benefits an individual over his/her lifetime. Understand the most powerful of infant immunizations - exclusive breastfeeding.
Make decisions on a vax- by- vax basis. There is no reason to blindly say 'yes' to 3. The Vaccine Book by Dr. Sears (who advocates for an alternative schedule of vaccinations), Take Charge of Your Child's Healthby Dr.
